A famous face joined campaigners today, on the route of the proposed High Speed 2 rail link (HS2). Actor Geoffrey Palmer, who starred in the television drama 'As Time Goes By', said he had a message for the Government: 'leave our countryside alone'.

Those opposed to HS2 say it will have a devastating impact. Our Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse reports.
