C2c have been named as the best performing train operator in the UK during May.

The company, which runs services via Barking, Romford, West Ham and Limehouse, ran the most punctual trains after achieving more than 96 per cent in the Public Performance Measure (PPM) last month.

The PPM figures published by Network Rail show the percentage of trains which arrive at their destination station within 4 minutes 59 seconds of advertised time.

The figures top the league table out of the 23 train operators in the country.

The national PPM is 91.2pc.

Julian Drury, c2c managing director, said: “We’re very pleased that we have regained our position as the most punctual rail operator in the UK. Since March 2016 we’ve worked really hard to get back in the top spot, and we’d like to thank all our staff who have helped us achieve this great result.

“We now aim to maintain and build on these figures month on month, to bring c2c customers the very best rail services.”
