The cold weather meant more misery for rail travellers today with serious disruption on a number of key commuter routes.

Rail fiasco could cost taxpayers millions and delay improvements
Millions of pounds in compensation hasn't been paid out - because rail passengers - don't know they can claim it. The money from rail firms is there for passengers facing delays or cancellations but the Government's Rail Regulator, says most people have no idea.
It says that:
Three quarters of people don't even know they're entitled to compensation.
74% say train companies do little or nothing to let them know they can claim.
That means £90 million is left unclaimed every year.

The construction of the High Speed 2 rail line will completely destroy the livelihoods of farmers, according to the union that represents them.
The National Farmers' Union says there are 23 farms along the proposed route in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire which would be seriously affected.
The government says farmers will be compensated - but landowners say the fields left behind would be un-useable. Our Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse reports.
Free school transport has been scrapped today in Oxfordshire - for up to three thousand children who don't go to the school nearest to their home. Campaigners say it means some young people will have to walk three miles to class.

Plans for the creation of the High Speed Two (HS2) rail link between London and the north have stepped up a pace with the announcement of a new college to train engineers who will work on the project.
It will be the first new incorporated Further Education College to be created in over 20 years.
The college will deliver specialised training in the areas of rail engineering, environmental skills and construction. The skills learned will then be used in the construction of HS2 and other infrastructure projects across the country.
– Vince Cable, Secretary of State for Business
"HS2 is the biggest infrastructure project that this government is delivering. So it is right that a large scale investment in bricks and mortar should also come with investment in the elite skills which will help build it. That's why this government is launching the first further education college in over 20 years, which will train the next generation of engineers in rail, construction and environmental studies that this country needs to prosper."

While many believe another runway is needed in our region, few want it in their back yard. Although the expansion of Heathrow could create thousands more jobs, it would also bring more aircraft noise and pollution. And in some cases whole communities could be wiped out.
Chris Maughan has been finding out what the expansion of Heathrow would mean for those living under the flightpath.
The Travel expert Simon Calder gives his opinion on today's Davies report on airport expansion.
Plans for a Thames Estuary airport were first proposed in the 1970s. But the idea was given new impetus five years ago by the London Mayor, Boris Johnson who proposed an airport off the Isle of Sheppey.
The architect Lord Foster suggested a hub airport on the Isle of Grain and there's even a proposal to build at Goodwin Sands, near Dover.
Our reporter, John Ryall has been in north Kent to find out what people there think.
