Fresh calls to scrap HS2 as nuclear power plant delayed

Fresh calls to scrap the mutli billion pound High Speed rail line linking the Midlands to London and the north have been made after another major infrastructure project stalled.

Today the Prime Minister delayed a decision to build the first nuclear power plant in decades, raising further questions about the future of HS2.

Opposers of the line say costs are spiralling and it'll be a huge waste of money, something business leaders here slammed as unhelpful. Chris Halpin reports.

Football legend campaigns to end child sexual abuse

Former England and Leicester City goalkeeper Peter Shilton is backing a campaign to stop children becoming victims of grooming.

CEASE – Commitment to Eradicate Abuse and Sexual Exploitation - aims to tackle the sexual exploitation of children by encouraging people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to protect the children in their lives and to spot the signs that could indicate a child is in danger.

Police say offenders will often target children through social media platforms and online gaming.

Leicestershire schoolgirl Kayleigh Haywood was groomed online by Luke Harlow and after exchanging 2643 messages over 13 days she agreed to meet him.

Two days later the 15-year-old was raped and murdered by Stephen Beadman, Harlow’s next door neighbour.

Football star Shilton pledged his support to try and prevent tragedies like this happening again by signing a CEASE hand which now has over four and a half thousand people behind it.
