Rail plans focus on cuts

Transport Secretary Justine Greening has outlined how the government plans to save billions of pounds from spending on the railways.

It follows a review last year by Sir Roy McNulty which said running costs should be cut by a third, bringing them in line with other European networks.

Sir Roy criticised the level of rail workers' wages and said some ticket offices may have to be closed.

Transport unions have expressed fears up to 12,000 jobs could be lost.

Brian Milligan reports.
