Both of North East Lincolnshire's MPs are calling on the Government to make sure the area gets a direct rail link to London.

The contract for the East Coast Main Line is being put out to tender, with bids due next year.

Grimsby MP, Austin Mitchell and Martin Vickers, who represents Cleethorpes, are calling for a direct link to London to be part of that contract.

Both MPs have written to Transport Minister Simon Burns, who is overseeing the change in franchise.
