What the papers say - Evening Standard

News stand

City workers are opposing Strategic Rail Authority (SRA) plans to cut commuter services into the City of London. A total of 17 stations in Kent and East Sussex will see services move to Victoria station. The SRA hopes people will instead travel to Ashford to use high speed commuter trains using the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. Tickets for the high speed service will cost 35% more.

A planning delay is threatening to scupper efforts to create a 'beach' on London's south bank. Organiser South Bank Beach fears Lambeth councillors' demands for a site visit could delay approval so long they will not have time to install it.
