New commuter trains to cut overcrowding

The first of a new generation of electric commuter trains to cut overcrowding in the Thames Valley is being introduced on the network on Monday.

The first trains will run from Maidenhead - but the £2.8 billion project remains late and over budget with work to Oxford, Swindon, Newbury and Basingstoke still to be completed.

Our Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse has been given exclusive access to the new carriages at Maidenhead.

Mike spoke to commuter Jon Swab, Andy Mellors from Great Western Railway and Martin Coker from the Maidenhead Passengers Association.
