More than £500m is to be spent electrifying the Midland Mainline, under a five-year plan announced by Network Rail.

The company said electrifying the line, which runs from London to Sheffield via the East Midlands, would allow for more reliable and faster trains.

The plan also includes an investment of £137m to increase capacity on the Derby line.
