  10. East-west divide in transport infrastructure spending

    Jim Addyman

    BBC Local Live

    The north of England is facing a growing east-west divide on transport investment, according to a new study from think tank the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).

    Motorway traffic

    The Yorkshire and Humber region will see transport spending worth £190 per person over the next five years.

    That compares to £682 in the North West of England, despite a relatively small difference in population - 5.33 million in Yorkshire and Humber compared to 7.05 million in the North West.

    The study suggests the North West has so far been the major beneficiary of the government's "Northern Powerhouse" drive.

  14. Listen: UK 'can't be held back' on delivering HS2

    The transport minister has defended the planned HS2 high-speed rail route which will run through South and West Yorkshire and into part of North Yorkshire, saying the project shouldn't be derailed because of how it affects homeowners.

    Andrew Jones, the MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, was speaking during a visit to the National College for High Speed Rail in Doncaster:
