Hundreds of villagers packed out a meeting hall today, to protest against the northern extension of HS2.
The high-speed rail service is scheduled to cut through picturesque countryside in Staffordshire, and local residents are demanding a rethink.
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.
