Farmers in Leicestershire who are worried about plans to build a high speed rail line through some of their fields will meet today to discuss the plans.
HS2 will run parallel with the A42 before heading through Breedon-on-the-Hill, Tonge and Diseworth. The line will also run under East Midlands Airport and then over the M1.
In February, farmers met at Staffordshire's County Showground to discuss the impact of HS2 cutting through agricultural land.
They believe that some farms will be destroyed by the line as well as woodlands and beautiful scenery.
HS2, which will link London to Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds, will cost around £33billion to complete.
