Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

As chair of the IET Railway Technical and Professional Network I was asked to contribute to a Telegraph (online) article on the impacts of (extreme) heat on the UK railway infrastructure. This was subsequently picked up by other online sources including the Guardian and CNN. It also led indirectly to a piece on BBC Radio 5 Live the following day (listed seperately).
