We talk to activists at the HS2 underground protest in London


Campaigners opposed to the HS2 rail plan are preparing to spend a sixth night in underground tunnels in central London, condemning efforts to evict them as dangerous.

The environmental campaigners, including the veteran activist known as Swampy, have dug tunnels beneath a garden square next to London’s Euston station in a bid to protect the green space.

The HS2 Rebellion group claim that the planned route will also see ancient woodlands destroyed and countless people forced from their homes and businesses and are demanding the whole scheme be scrapped.
