A RAFT of new parking charges at railway stations in and around Leeds have been ruled out by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.

But sources have told the YEP the cost of maintaining free parking at 18 stations could be higher fares on local rail services.

The YEP revealed last month that Mr McLoughlin was considering proposals to introduce new parking charges to help reduce the amount of money the Government pays in subsidies to Northern Rail, the company responsible for local train services across much of the region.
