In a scathing attack MPs have criticised the government's plans for HS2 - the High speed rail line linking the East Midlands with London and the North.
The reports findings say that as the costs continue to spiral the proposed economic benefits for cities like Nottingham, Derby and Leicester are fading. Our political correspondent Alison Mackenzie 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.
