RAIL users across Times Territory who are unhappy at plans to cut ticket office opening times at stations can now take their complaints direct to the Prime Minister.

Last month train company First Capital Connect (FCC) unveiled plans to cut ticket office hours at 28 of its stations, including WGC, Welwyn North, Knebworth and Cuffley.

The news has been widely criticised by rail unions who urged passengers to protest to London TravelWatch against FCC's proposals.

And now the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) has set up a petition on the Number 10 website, calling on Gordon Brown to press FCC to reconsider its plans.

Speaking about the petition, TSSA leader Gerry Doherty said: "We want passengers to let the Prime Minister know what they really think about these cutbacks which will

mean a worse service and less secure stations."
