A lawyer from the firm who represented High Speed 2 Action Alliance (HS2AA) - who won a case against the government today - expressed delight over the victory on the compensation challenge.
Government consultations on compensating those affected by the proposed HS2 high-speed rail scheme were today ruled "unlawful" by the High Court, lawyers Leigh Day said.
The High Court is to rule today on legal challenges to the Government's HS2 high-speed rail scheme.
This report from January by Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen explains the route's location and why it is so controversial:
The Institute of Directors (IoD), which represents the business community, has called for the government to extend the HS2 line to Heathrow Airport.
The chairman of 51m - an alliance of 18 local authorities opposed to HS2 - has warned that the project will not universally benefit train services:
He added that the line would "blight the lives, property and businesses of tens of thousands of people".
Brighton boss Gus Poyet admitted his side only had themselves to blame after a wonder-strike from Chris Burke condemned the Seagulls to their first league defeat since the opening day of the season.
A sixth successive victory would have given Brighton their best start to a season for 35 years.
