Plans for disabled access at Tube stations 'scrapped'


London Mayor Boris Johnson proudly showed off the new Overground station at Shoreditch on Tuesday - it's due to open later in the year.

£20m has already been spent on preparatory work for the project, which has now been abandoned.

Transport Correspondent Tom Edwards reports.
