A public consultation gets underway today (28 April) on plans for a controversial new rail depot in Northamptonshire.

Rail Central want to build the rail depot on a 700 acre site between Milton Malsor and Blisworth.

People living in the area say it would cause traffic problems and ruin the countryside but the developers say it will create 8,000 jobs.

The plans for Rail Central will go on show from today until 21 May.
