David Cameron gives green light to high-speed 'HS3' link
Prime Minister David Cameron has given the green light to plans for a high-speed "HS3" rail link in the north of England, following a report by HS2 boss Sir David Higgins.
Sir David said better rail links in northern England were "desirable" and "possible" after being asked to look at ways of maximising the benefits of HS2.
Mr Cameron said he was "passionate" about high-speed rail but acknowledged that the plans were "not always popular".
