Ed Miliband says MPs will not give up fight to change HS2 route near Sheffield

Residents in South Yorkshire say they're living under a cloud of uncertainty over whether their homes will be demolished to make way for the proposed HS2 rail link.

While rest of the country learned the Government's preferred route today, Sheffield was the only place along the proposal to be left in limbo.

It comes after initial plans to run trains to a station at Meadowhall were shelved, meaning the new route would run right through a newly built housing development in Mexborough.

Doncaster North MP Ed Miliband says there are better routes available to the government that would avoid bulldozing homes in his constituency.
