The mayor of Greater Manchester has asked for 1bn of government funding for a London-style transport service in the region.

Andy Burnham launched the bid after the government invited submissions in its "levelling up" strategy to reduce regional disparity.

The Labour mayor said central funding would mean lower fares and more frequent services.

The BBC has asked the government for a response.

Ooh! Aintree Andy won't like this one little bit, he'll be reaching for his anorak and flat cap for tomorrow's photo op. While his Manchester Evening mouthpiece reports his every word.
