Barrister Peter Barnett: biggest train fare dodge

A barrister thought to be the biggest train fare-dodger to be prosecuted in the UK will appear in court so the losses caused can be determined.

Peter Barnett, 44, is said to have spent more than two years avoiding paying for his ticket, causing a loss of £23,000 to Chiltern Railways.

He regularly travelled from his Oxford home to London Marylebone but pretended to have only travelled from Wembley, north-west London.
