The scandal of the HS2 homewreckers: Residents railroaded out of the houses they loved to make way for new high-speed line… only for it to be rerouted
- Dozens of homes were bought by the Government for the for the controversial HS2 335-mile network
- HS2 changed route in 3 parts of the country, leaving it with properties worth £21m on land it no longer needs
