Plans for a high speed rail link between London and the Midlands have taken a major step forward today. Two Parliamentary bills to press ahead with the controversial project were included in the Queen's Speech.
Business leaders have welcomed the move - saying it should now go ahead as quickly as possible. But opponents along the route say they will not give up their fight to stop it. Keith Wilkinson reports.
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.
