Around three-quarters of the money needed to fund a judicial review against HS2 has been raised.

The HS2 Action Alliance is hoping to challenge the Government in the Court of Appeal about its ‘failure to comply with important legislation designed to protect the environment’.

To do this it needs to raise £100,000 by the end of May, with around £75,000 donated to the cause so far.

The group’s director Hilary Wharf said: “It has been a really good response and we have got a number of initiatives for over the last week and we hope to be in a position at the end of the month to take a final view.

“We need this last push to get there and would ask people to support us.”

The group previously said if it doesn’t get the money it won’t be able to go to court.
