Former TfL boss Sir Peter Hendy takes over at Network Rail

Former Transport for London Commissioner Sir Peter Hendy will start his first day on the job as the new chairman of Network Rail today.

Sir Peter Hendy was a senior figure at TfL for almost 15 years before being made chairman of Network Rail Credit: Transport for London

He was installed in the job by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin late last month. It's hoped he can help rescue Britain's rail network after over-running engineering work at stations such as London Bridge led to a catalogue of delays for commuters. He is expected by the government to undertake a review of Network Rail's investment programme over the next few months.

London Underground boss Mike Brown is taking over as the interim TfL Commissioner until a permanent replacement is recruited.
