Sheffield Council leader Julie Dore signs a 60-year partnership deal with Wang Chunming, chairman and president of Chinese firm Sichuan Guodong Construction Group, in Sheffield's sister city Chengdu.

Further east it will be Doncaster. Doncaster is served by a quicker service to London. It looks as if it will then be cancelled.

I will put my head on the chopping block and suggest that neither will happen.

If it does happen I will admit I got it wrong.
