Darling warns on cash squeeze

Transport secretary Alistair Darling last week warned the rail industry that there would be no extra cash for the railways for the next three years.

He said train and track operators must improve their customer relations before they start asking for more government money.

Darling's comments come as the industry prepares for next April's comprehensive spending review announcement from Chancellor Gordon Brown. This will set out spending plans for the next three years.
