New-look Leicester railway station praised by city mayor Sir Peter Soulsby
A refurbished railway station has been given the civic seal of approval.
More than £6 million has been invested in improvements to Leicester's railway station over the past year.
They include a new entrance and shopping area, refurbished ticket office, concourse and waiting rooms, resurfaced platforms and updated customer information boards.
Access to the station has also changed, with the re-building of passenger drop-off area and short-stay car park and taxi ranks.

The revamp was paid for by Network Rail, the Department for Transport and East Midlands Trains.
City mayor Sir Peter Soulsby, who was guest of honour at the official opening yesterday, said: "Leicester station is a fantastic building and this ambitious refurbishment has created a truly welcoming and attractive gateway into our city.
"I want to congratulate Network Rail and East Midlands Trains on this successful and sensitive redevelopment."
Martin Frobisher, Network Rail's route managing director for the East Midlands, said: "The work has made the station more accessible, attractive and welcoming for visitors and locals.
"It now looks and feels like a modern station and has radically improved the customer experience."
