The operator, Southeastern, will start running the full timetable in December but plans to increase services before then. The 6m Javelin trains halve the journey time to 37 minutes. A Javelin return from Ashford costs 48.40p, compared with 40.60p for slower services. BY BO WILSON World at a glance Alive!Babycutfrommurdermumswomb A BABY girl who was cut from her murdered mothers womb has been found alive a week later. Police in the US said the infant was in fairly good health when they found her with a woman who claimed the baby was hers. The corpse of Darlene Haynes, 23, who was eight months pregnant when she died, was found hidden in a cupboard at her flat in Worcester, Massachussets, after her landlord went to investigate a smell on Monday. Police appealed for information after an autopsy revealed the foetus was missing. Julie Corey, 35, and a male companion were arrested in Plymouth, New Hampshire, after friends told police they were suspicious of Coreys claims she had given birth. She was charged as a fugitive from justice and was today being held for questioning. The case appears to be the latest in a series of crimes in which pregnant women have been killed for unborn babies. Victim: Darlene Haynes A CAR exploded today outside police barracks at a tourist resort in Majorca killing two people. The blast happened at 2pm outside a Civil Guard building in Palmanova, near Magaluf, injuring several others. The barracks are next to a hotel popular with British holidaymakers. A Civil Guard spokesman said: At the moment all we can confirm is that theres been an explosion outside the barracks.

COMMUTER rail lines were brought to a near-standstill today by a 48-hour strike. National Express East Anglia services to and from Liverpool Street had only a skeleton service in operation, causing disruption to more than 150,000 rush-hour passengers. RMT union boss Bob Crow, who ordered the strike, said the action had been solidly supported, with picket lines at Liverpool Street and depots. The regular timetable was scrapped and replaced with an hourly service between London and Essex. Routes run by the East Coast main line, c2c and First Capital Connect suffered overcrowding. National Express managing director Andrew Chivers con- demned the strikers demands for a 2.5 per cent pay increase and four-day working week. But Andy Morrison, of union Aslef, denied these were the claims and said the dispute was caused by a breakdown in industrial relations. Three further 48-hour stop- pages are planned for Thursdays and Fridays next month. Motorists were stuck for two hours in an 18-mile jam between junctions 27 and 30 of the M25 in this mornings rush hour. The tailback was caused by a crash involving three lorries and two cars.
