A leading bookmaker is offering Southern Railway passengers the chance to bet on their train being cancelled.

Paddy Power is offering odds of 5/1 that one of Southern's services will be cancelled on Christmas Eve.

A spokesman said: "The news has been dominated recently by Southern's failures and we wanted to rail back against them.

"After all, this is a company who have just announced yet another price hike for 2017 - it's about time we told them to take a hike of their own.

"This way, if commuters are stuck on Christmas Eve, at least they'll get some money in their pocket."
