What the papers say

Engineering work on the East Coast Main Line could mean almost constant timetable disruption for several years. Two daily London-Edinburgh services may be cut. Passenger groups have accused the Strategic Rail Authority of conducting a six week consultation process on the matter in private.

At least one motorist a day goes through red lights on level crossings in Scotland, some missing trains by just seconds. Cameras caught almost 250 drivers between January and May this year.

The Department for Transport is blaming reckless middle aged bikers for the highest annual death toll on Britain's roads since 1977. Only deaths among motorcycle users showed a significant change, rising by 84 to 693. The RAC Foundation said last year's hot summer sparked a revived interest in motorbikes among affluent people in their late 30s and 40s.
