£500m fund to restore Beeching rail cuts goes ahead amid criticism

A government fund is to be launched later to restore historic railway lines closed more than 50 years ago under the so-called Beeching cuts.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps will visit Fleetwood to announce £21.9m for two railway lines and a New Stations Fund.

The £500m promise was made in the Tory election manifesto in November.

But Labour called the plan "meaningless", adding that £500m would reopen just 25 miles of railway.

And the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) described the funds as a "drop in the ocean".
