Video: HS2 'mistake is amateurish'

The MP for Chesterfield, Toby Perkins has dubbed the decision over where to build the high speed rail link 'amateurish'. It's after claims the maps used to choose the route were out of date.

The track, which links London to Leeds cuts across parts of Chesterfield canal.

But documents regarding the construction of the link, which were submitted to the government in March 2012, included maps which are missing nearby Staveley Basin which was built more than a year ago.
