Criticism from two fronts for A14 upgrade plans

Plans to upgrade the A14 have come under fire yet again today from both MPs and a transport campaign group.

The Campaign for Better Transport says widening the roads around Brampton, near Huntingdon, and Bar Hill, near Cambridge, will cause an unacceptable increase in air pollution.

At the same time, a group of the region's MPs told a Commons debate that making part of the route a toll road would damage businesses in the region.

Elodie Harper has the story.
