An MP in Staffordshire held a meeting today, to answer any questions from local residents who may be concerned by the HS2 rail line, which cuts through Staffordshire.
Tory MP for Stone, Bill Cash, has spoken out against the northern extension of the high-speed rail link announced by the Government this week.
The public meeting was held at Swynnerton Cricket Club today.
The meeting proved so popular, a queue gather outside the meeting room.
The HS2 line is proposed to cut by the village of Swynnerton.
No stops are currently planned in Staffordshire.
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.
