Home on HS2 route 'worthless' - full report

There are new fears tonight over the value of thousands of homes along the route of the proposed High Speed two rail link. It follows the case of a house in Buckinghamshire which has been valued for a mortgage at nothing.

It's left the 97 year old owner, who is in a care home, unable to sell and desperately needing to pay for care fees.

Our Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse reports and speaks to son Mike Harper-Tarr, David Richards of Turweston Parish Council and house buyer David Babister.
