Cable thefts fall on Anglia's rail network

The number of cable thefts on Anglia's rail network has started to fall. Since January there have been just two attacks on our region's railways - a big decrease compared to July when there was a high of 26 thefts in one month.

Network Rail and British Transport Police say the success in tackling the crimes is due to a new task force and a change in legislation.

The latest train punctuality figures show services run by new operator Greater Anglia were slightly worse than its predecessor National Express.

According to the figures, 91.8 per cent of Greater Anglia's trains arrived on time last month compared with 92 per cent for National Express East Anglia last year.

But the Dutch owned firm say it performed well later in the month and figures for the intercity services between Norwich and London were better than at any time in the last two years.
