Philip Hammond announced the so-called millennials railcard at the Budget last autumn.

Labour has torn into the Government after its website offering a flagship ‘millennial railcard’ crashed on its first day of nationwide sales.

Shadow Transport Secretary Andy McDonald mocked the embarrassing muddle and said the promise of the railcard “crashed long before its website did”.

The new railcard for 26 to 30-year-olds – announced by Philip Hammond at the last Autumn Budget – costs £30 and will grant a third off most fares in England, Wales and Scotland.
