Greater Anglia is to have more on-board security staff on train services in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and lines to London.

Peter Meades, of Greater Anglia, who have just taken over the franchise, said security staff will target problem areas where trouble has been identified or people were travelling without tickets.
"We're increasing the numbers of making travel safe officers employed across the network," he said.
"They will work with on-train staff, revenue protection officers and British Transport Police to reassure passengers about safety.
"They will also make sure everyone travelling has paid for their ticket.
"Where a problem is identified we will be able to concentrate numbers of staff."
