PM and chancellor outline HS3 high speed rail link

Plans for a high-speed "HS3" rail link in the north of England have moved a step closer after a report by the boss of the HS2 scheme, 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.

Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne are making statements on the latest on the project.
