HS2 Ltd chairman Sir David Higgins has called for a larger development at Euston - the project's southern terminus.

Euston is the HS2 London terminus and there have been various changes to the original plans, with concerns expressed about the effect of the development on the area which includes the famous Camden market.

Sir David said today:

"I propose the Government should look at a more comprehensive redevelopment of Euston - a solution that could truly stand the test of time and allow the station to join St Pancras and King's Cross as an iconic driver of local regeneration whose beneficial effects will be felt for generations."
