Paralympian Richard Whitehead helped to launch the new faster East Midlands to London trains this morning.
Trains will run up to eight minutes faster following £70m of investment and upgrades to 160 miles of track.
The Paralympic gold-medallist believes the quicker train journeys will improve community links and bring more business to the East Midlands.
