Both the BBC and Transport Briefing report today on the 'new' London Overground service which is to be launched by the Mayor of London later today. Says the BBC:

London Overground (LO) has taken over the suburban routes previously operated by Silverlink which include the North London Line and West London Line.

Passengers have been assured of "immediate improvements" with the introduction of Oyster pay-as-you-go facilities and greater staffing levels.

Services on the new network began on Sunday morning.
