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.
We're making the case to the government to put the North of England to the front of the queue for new transport investment.
We can't carry on as we are, and we can't keep funnelling money into London year on year.
