Britain's only railway military band has won its battle to carry on playing at its traditional home. Railtrack said last week that platform refurbishment would mean the 80-year-old Great Western Railway Band would have to leave its home at London's Paddington station.

But last night Railtrack said that a "blast of opposition" had led to a change of heart and that the band could play on at Paddington.
