High speed rail link 'may damage fisheries'

The proposed high speed rail link between London and Birmingham could damage Northamptonshire's fisheries, The Angling Trust claims.

The organisation has written to fisheries minister Richard Benyon asking him to investigate the impact on sites adjacent to the route.

This includes the River Great Ouse near Turweston and Brackley.

The trust is concerned about the detrimental impact of construction and the noise of the trains.
