Derbyshire Dales MP and Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, has admitted that catching the train drives him “bloody crackers”.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Mr McLoughlin said he was infuriated by disruption to his regular journey from Derby to London.

“I use the train most weeks to go from Derby to London and I use it on the Sunday and sometimes it drives me bloody crackers,” he said.

The superfast connection between London and Birmingham will ease overcrowding for thousands, he claimed.
