Grayling accused of 'running scared' after pulling out of north-west transport summit
Transport secretary criticised for choosing London over north by attending Heathrow vote
Chris Grayling has been accused of “running scared” after he pulled out of a key transport summit in Manchester because it clashes with a House of Commons vote on Heathrow expansion.
The transport secretary had been due to appear at the Place North West conference on Monday alongside political leaders from across the region following weeks of rail misery for commuters.
