The £22.5million first phase will begin early next year with plans to see an extended platform allow for more services and longer trains.

Preparatory work is expected to start in the autumn and building work in early 2021.

Based in Boho Five, games design studio, Radical Forge, has this week launched the trailer for its long-awaited game Bright Paw. 

The game follows Theo, the pet cat of a typically British Supervillian who has just been killed, through a range of puzzles all with a very, engaging narrative (trust us, we’ve heard about some of the behind the scenes and it sounds great!) 

The team has been working on this project for two and half years and, after plenty of late nights and working through weekends, is excited to show the trailer to the world.
