Great Western Railway's new Hitachi intercity express trains are being tested in the South West.

The Class 802 fleet is due to enter service next summer, operating between Devon and Cornwall and London Paddington.

On Tuesday, the trains carried out test runs in Somerset, between Bruton and Cogload.

We know how important the railway is to the economies and communities of the South West, and the start of testing marks another milestone in delivering the improvements we know our passengers wish to see. These trains will help us deliver faster, more frequent services into the South West, each providing up to a fifth more seats per train.”

New measures planned to help prevent spread of bird flu

Adrian Campbell, Environment Correspondent

The government has set out plans to update temporary measures put in place to reduce the risk of avian flu.

The disease has caused the deaths of wild birds and poultry in 14 European countries and the Avian Influenza Prevention Zone was declared in December following an outbreak of bird flu among turkeys at a farm in Lincolnshire.

The new plans will come into force once the current prevention zone expires on 28 February.

In high risk areas people will have to keep their birds housed or netted but in other areas, birds will be allowed out for the first time since the start of December.

The changes mean many egg producers in low risk areas will keep their free range status but in high risk areas, producers will lose free range status on 1 March - something the NFU says will be very damaging.
