Northern Ireland's publicly owned rail network last week received a £105M cash boost from the power sharing regional government.

The secretary of state for transport, local government and the regions, Stephen Byers, last week handed Arsenal Football Club's new £200M planned stadium a boost, when he decided that a public inquiry was not required.
