A horse stables owner who runs a yard that sits on the path of the second phase of the HS2 rail line is devastated that high speed trains will cut through the local countryside.
Tim Marsland, of Crowberry Stables in Middleton, Warwickshire – and guardian of a horse that belonged to Prince Harry, says that the trains, which could pass every three minutes, will scare the horses. He's now looking at relocating or retiring.
The horse, which was given to Prince Harry for his 13th Birthday, will now need to be relocated.
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.
