Extended electrified Midland Main Line news welcomed

Business Secretary Vince Cable arrived in Leicester by train to confirm news that more of the Midland Main Line would be electrified.

The £800m project will mean shorter journey times from Nottingham, Leicester and Derby to London.

It is hoped the work will begin in 2014.
