SMALL FIRMS are today discussing how companies can win infrastructure contracts for the Crossrail link connecting East and West London.

The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry is bringing together its small business members and Crossrail bosses for the first event of its kind.

Business people from industries including engineering, building, manufacturing and marketing are taking part in the talks at Savoy Place in central London.
