RAILWAY children have pleaded with First Capital Connect (FCC) to save their fast train. This is the next step in Ashwell and Morden Rail User Group's campaign to keep their services which are threatened with cuts.

Children gathered at the station with placards spelling out 'Save Our Fast Trains Please'. Emily Wallis, 6, had written a letter to First Capital Connect managing director Elaine Holt about her mum having to leave for work earlier to get the slow train.

She said: "I like to see mummy in the morning. But now I'll be asleep when she goes to work. That makes me sad."
