Recent from Channel 4 News:

  • Protesters lobby G7 leaders on ‘climate emergency’
  • Rising Covid cases could delay England’s 21 June lockdown exit
  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Great British Railway plan promises simplified fares in biggest rail shake-up since privatisation” – below is their description.

    The government has announced plans for Britain’s trains to be run under a single brand name “Great British Railways”. The change unpicks one of the main features of the privatised rail system introduced by the Conservatives 25 years ago – but it’s not renationalisation.

    Although the public will no longer see a patchwork of train operators with different names and paint jobs, those companies will still be there, just running the trains behind the scenes.
