The Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry says it is essential that lessons are learned from the disruption caused by the tram extensions to Toton and Clifton. Extending the multi-million line which opened last year caused months of pain and disruption for traders and residents. She says this should not be allowed to happen in future big infrastructure projects.
A Midlands MP is calling on residents to fight what she's calling a "double threat" to the green belt in her consituency. Anna Soubry has attacked proposals to allow the building of hundreds of new homes. She's also resisting plans for an opencast mine in the area.
