Transport Secretary: 'HS2 benefits will spread beyond route'

Transport Secretary says that the HS2 will be first main line north of London for nearly 120 years.

Patrick McLoughlin has told the House of Commons that it is not just about faster trains to London - but about how our greatest cities are linked.

Mr McLoughlin said he is determined that HS2 benefits will be spread much wider than just those places served by the line.
