The Government face calls to upgrade rail links to North East Lincolnshire during a Commons debate. It comes after the Transport Secretary, Justine Greening, unveiled plans to electrify the Midland Mainline into Sheffield, as well as funding for the Northern Rail Hub and
extra capacity on the East Coast Main Line. Martin Vickers, the Conservative MP for Cleethorpes, says he hopes the plans announced yesterday could help pave the way for direct routes from North East Lincolnshire to London - something he describes as "vital for the economic regeneration of the area".
