Ed Miliband criticises West Coast Main Line 'fiasco'

The bidding process for the West Coast Main Line franchise is a "fiasco", according to Ed Miliband.

The Labour leader said that David Cameron needed to "get a grip" on an "incompetent government".

The government has scrapped a decision to let FirstGroup take over the route from Virgin after "technical flaws" were found in the competition process.

Three Department for Transport civil servants have been suspended.
