Campaigners lose latest HS2 legal challenge

Campaigners have lost their latest legal challenge over the Government's HS2 high-speed rail project.

The HS2 Action Alliance and Hillingdon Council in west London argued that argued the Transport Secretary had not undertaken sufficient environmental assessments on phase 1 of the route.

But Mr Justice Lindblom, sitting at the High Court in London, dismissed all grounds for the claim.
