Palin, who is a well-known campaigner for better public transport and president of pressure group Transport 2000, will give his name to a local train running through East Anglia, the region where he spent much of his childhood.

Andy Cooper, Managing Director of Anglia Railways, said yesterday: "I am delighted that Michael Palin is giving his name to one of our trains.He is recognised for his travels across the world and for his interest and support for railways and public transport in general."
