West Coast rethink?

It left many of us scratching our heads in frustration and today an MP has finally requested a delay in the awarding of the West Coast Mainline Rail Franchise to First Group.

Transport Select Committee Chairman Louise Ellman has written to Transport Secretary Justine Greening requesting more scrutiny of the deal.

Earlier this month Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson called the decision to award the franchise to rival First Group "insane".
