Countryside campaigners have been voicing concerns about the planned high speed rail line between London and the Midlands. A meeting was held today on the site of the proposed HS2 route, two days before a judicial review begins into the multi-billion pound scheme.
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.
