  4. Milton Keynes council to suspend rent after flooding

    Milton Keynes Council will suspend rent for two months for council tenants who have been "severely affected" by flooding.

    On Monday, about two months of rain fell in a matter of hours and many properties in Milton Keynes were damaged.

    The leader of the council, Labour's Peter Marland, has called on private landlords in the area to "consider helping their impacted tenants if possible".

    The council has also said there will be a £100,000 hardship fund, which will be open to all residents "severely impacted" by flooding.

    Speaking about the "flood emergency hardship scheme", Mr Marland said "no-one should have to go to a pay-day lender or loan shark to cover emergency costs".

  15. Govia Thameslink petition tops 10,000 sigantures

    A petition started by a commuter, asking for Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) to "have its contract immediately removed" has reached the 10,000 signatures it needed to get a response for the government.

    St Albans City station

    Simon Lee's petition says the Secretary of State for Transport should "intervene immediately" over GTR's "failure to implement its new timetable leaving commuters stranded and mass cancellations of services despite having a year to plan for the changes".

    He said on Twitter he launched a Parliamentary petition because he was "just a commuter who has had enough".

    On Friday morning it had been signed by more than 11,500 people.

    On Thursday, in a joint statement Network Rail and Govia Thameslink blamed the sheer number of changes and the late running of some engineering works for the disruption and said they were "extremely sorry".
