16:38 - 18 April 2006
More than a dozen local organisations have put their weight behind the Severn Beach railway line after a row over funding. Charities, NHS primary care trusts and businesses are among those who have signed an open letter condemning Bristol City Council for ending a subsidy for the busy commuter rail line.

The line's 136,000 annual subsidy is being scrapped in the new budget approved by members on February 26.

Campaign group Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways says this will lead to a reduction in services.

The council has said the subsidy was only ended after First Great Western said it would pick up the bill.
