  1. Romsey reaction to Prince Louis naming

    Local reaction to the naming of the new royal baby as Louis Arthur Charles.

    It's thought to be a nod to Lord Louis Mountbatten, the great-uncle of Prince Charles who lived at Broadlands in Romsey, Hampshire.

    As well as his close links to the Royal Family, Lord Mountbatten was a British statesman. He served as the last Viceroy of India and was appointed as the First Sea Lord and Chief of the Defence Staff.

    He was killed, along with three others, in 1979 when the IRA detonated a bomb under his fishing boat off Mullaghmore in County Sligo.

    It said UK passengers are paying for a "broken" rail franchising model.
