A family in North East Derbyshire say they are angry they have been kept in the dark about plans for the new high speed rail link, as their house is one of those which could have to be knocked down.

Maxine Charlesworth and partner Stephen Redhall live in Killamarsh, and say they have been given no information about the plans, despite the fact the proposed route could run right outside the front of their house.

Two resident meetings are being held later today in the nearby area to discuss the situation.
