Weekday commuters use revamped station

A new era has dawned for Birmingham New Street, one of Britain's busiest railway stations.

Weekday commuters have got their first taste of Phase One of the redevelopment of the station, which has to cope with up to 140,000 passengers every day.

It is being revamped in two big stages. One half opened on Sunday and the other half is now being upgraded.
