Train operators are giving away 12 “golden tickets”.

A survey of 2,781 adults across the UK commissioned by the rail industry indicated that 28% of people have not taken any annual leave at all this year.

Nearly one in four (24%) of those respondents said they are waiting for coronavirus restrictions to be lifted before they book time off.

The poll also suggested that 47% of working adults have worked longer than their normal hours during the pandemic.
