Work starts on Midland Main Line electrification.

Work has started on the next phase of electrification of the Midlands Main Line, Network Rail has said.

The 12-mile (19km) section of track between Market Harborough and Wigston, Leicestershire is being upgraded.

The government said the project would allow for potential electrification of the route to Sheffield and Nottingham.

The route between London and Corby was upgraded and electrified in 2021.

Hopefully, they'll follow up soon afterwards with the next section to Leicester.
