Beverley MP Graham Stuart and a delegation of MPs, councillors and business leaders from the East Riding of Yorkshire met with the Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin, to push for electrification of the railway line between Selby and Hull.

The proposal is being led by First Hull Trains, and has a goal of completion by 2017, the year when Hull will be the City of Culture.

Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart, said: “I wholeheartedly endorse the plan to electrify the rail line between Selby and Hull. The East Riding of Yorkshire needs a 21st Century Rail Network that provides top-quality links to other parts of the country.
