MP: Standard class rail users 'different'


Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Winterton has criticised the new expenses culture at the House of Commons, saying he's "infuriated" that he can no longer travel first class on trains.

He told Stephen Nolan on BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire show that passengers who travel in standard class on trains are a "totally different type of people".
