    An Israeli court has ordered a train company to pay £90 compensation after a passenger suffered overcrowding on his journey.

    Judge Ruthi Bahat at the Beersheva small claims court ruled that Israel Railways had not lived up to its obligations to maintain the public's well-being.

    According to Israeli businesses news site Globes, the man filed the case after travelling by train last autumn during Succot. He complained because passengers were forced to sit on tables and the floor, the air-conditioning did not work and the toilets were locked.

    The judge said: "It is fair and reasonable for a passenger to expect to have a place to sit, that the lavatories should be in order, and that the air-conditioning and loudspeaker systems should function properly."

    "It is reasonable for a passenger to expect that more tickets than there are seats available won't be sold."
