Bombardier workers in Derby look set to receive a late Christmas present if the order for additional class 378 vehicles goes ahead.

Transport for London has been in discussions with the train builder regarding adding an extra vehicle to all of its 57 sets of class 378s and the possibility of ordering another five complete trains. The news comes in the wake of a huge surge in passengers using the London Overground network.
