Camden Council worried over HS2 compensation 'shortfall'

A north London borough has said the national compensation pot for communities affected by the proposed HS2 high-speed rail link between London and Birmingham may not be enough for its area.

Camden Council estimates the redevelopment could mean the compensation bill for the area could touch £1bn, but it is expected the government could put aside between £930m and £1.3bn to cover payouts for the whole project.

Schools and businesses in Camden are complaining about a lack of information about the redevelopment of Euston station and the impact it will have on their lives.

Antony Stoll, chair of governors of Netley Primary school, and Councillor Sarah Heywood speak about their concerns.
