Thousands sign petition for more transport cash for north of England
More than 29,000 people back petition that comes after transport secretary Chris Grayling ditched rail electrification plans
More than 29,000 people have signed a petition calling for more investment in transport in the north of England, after rail electrification plans across the country were scrapped.
Chris Grayling gave his backing last week to Crossrail 2, a £30bn railway that will tunnel under London, days after ditching a scheme to electrify some train lines in Wales, the Midlands and the north.
