"A civil servant in Whitehall was almost jailed in the 1970s for saving Aberystwyth’s train service and many others targeted for a wave of Beeching-style closures, it has been revealed.

"The Director of Public Prosecutions ordered police to track down the Whitehall mole who leaked a top-secret report on shrinking the rail network.
