We are going to be able to get on the internet if we are getting the train from Cornwall to London.

First Great Western has announced the Penzance to Paddington service will have WIFI by the end of next year.

It is part of plans to improve things for passengers after the franchise was extended for two years.

Newquay and St Austell MP Stephen Gilbert said he is pleased: "I think we should be clear that it's a long journey. Making sure that you can use that time productively will be a real boost to local businesses and to everybody else who might use Facebook or Twitter or anything else as they're travelling up to pass the time.

"We are seeing First Great Western stepping up to the plate and using this extension of the franchise to invest both in WIFI, new rolling stock, new sleeper trains. I think all of this promises to be the beginnings of the modernisation of the network between Penzance and Paddington."
