A local train operator says it is stopping staff from clipping tickets for fear that it's hurting their wrists.
Abellio Greater Anglia has decided to take the step in order to protect train conductors who can see as many as 600 passengers on a single journey.
From now on, conductors will us other techniques such as putting a red cross on tickets with marker pens.
Greater Anglia said that they were reacting to requests from staff.
A Greater Anglia spokesperson said: "In response to requests from our front line colleagues, we are phasing out the use of clippers and will be using alternative methods of marking checked tickets."
