More rail disruption on Sunday after train cracks found

Two rail operators warn passengers not to travel after cracks were found in some high-speed trains.

He told BBC business correspondent Katy Austin that while body shell cracking would not "cause the trains to crash or disintegrate or anything like that", action needed to be taken, because if metal fatiguing was allowed to continue, the "cracks will spread, and the body shell strength will be weakened".
