An inquiry by a cross party committee of MPs has concluded that the HS2 project should go ahead because the alternatives on offer would not be able to cope with demand.
The group heard from a number of witnesses about the pros and cons of the proposed £33 billion pound rail link.
The MPs reject accusations from those opposed to HS2 that the evidence they considered was flawed.
An influential group of MPs says the DfT has failed to present 'a convincing strategic case' for HS2.
Campaigners say they hope to put plans for HS2 through the Midlands back to square one as they prepare to go to the High Court tomorrow.
Campaigners from HS2 Action Alliance are heading to London tomorrow to take on the Government at the Court of Appeal.
