Rail passengers who like to plan and book train journeys well ahead face unwelcome surprises for the remainder of the year: they may pay more than they need, or discover that their scheduled service is cancelled.

If you thought weddings were expensive enough already – the average in the UK now costs around £27k – you're about to get a rude awakening. The average price of getting married is going to increase to £32k in the next 10 years, according to projections based on data from the Office for National Statistics.
