Stop HS2 remain optimistic over today's review

Joe Rukin from Stop HS2 told ITV News Central that he remains optimistic about the outcome of today's review.

The High Court is expected to give its ruling on a number of legal challenges to the government's plans for HS2 later today.

Opponents of the high speed rail plans are asking a judge in London to declare the multi-billion pound project legally flawed and to reconsider the plans.

The first phase of HS2 would see a high-speed railway line running from London to Birmingham.

If successful, the legal challenge could potentially delay the scheme for years.
