The Trade Unions spent time at King's Lynn Train Station this morning as people findout how much their tickets will go up in price this year.

The unions are calling for the railways to be re-nationalised to stop money going to shareholders.

It comes as a new East - West Trainline could be on the way. It would involve putting down new track between Cambridge and Oxford, with services connecting between Norwich, and as far as Bristol.

Norfolk County Council says it would be great for people in our County, but it would go through Ely and Thetford, bypassing us here in King's Lynn.
