Southern committed to railway accessibility | Letters

To suggest that changes by Southern Rail have made matters worse for disabled passengers (No guarantee of help for disabled passengers, 17 January) is profoundly misleading.

Garden Bridge: don't bank on it not being built

The mayor’s stance on the controversial Thames crossing project and the optimism of those behind it show that predictions of its demise may prove premature Enemies of the Garden Bridge, potentially the most permanent of Boris Johnson’s mayoral follies, have been encouraged by the trust responsible for building it saying in its latest annual report that it is “unable to conclude” that the project “is a going concern”.
