The Mayor of Greater Manchester has said he's "not surprised" by new figures which suggest that the North West gets less than half the transport investment allocated to London.
Andy Burnham says "packed out, clapped out" trains and poor roads are preventing the Northern Powerhouse from reaching its full potential.

The first passenger train has run across a new bridge which links Manchester's three main railway stations for the first time.
Network Rail says the Ordsall Chord, the world’s first asymmetric rail bridge, will benefit customers across the region.
The bridge is located at the birthplace of modern intercity railways, where in 1830 George Stephenson’s unveiled the Liverpool-Manchester railway.
It is is part of the multi-billion-pound Great North Rail Project, an effort by the rail industry to transform train travel for people across the north of England.
