Good evening. for the news where you are.

:00:09.:00:12.

The first of a series of community information events about HS2 -

:00:13.:00:15.

the proposed high-speed rail line between West Yorkshire

:00:16.:00:17.

The event was in Rothwell, near Leeds, for people who'll be

:00:18.:00:22.

affected by living along the planned route.

:00:23.:00:24.

Today was a chance for the people of Rockwell and the surrounding area

:00:25.:00:34.

to put their concerns about HS2 to the people responsible

:00:35.:00:36.

for delivering it and they didn't hold back.

:00:37.:00:39.

Well, they will have to do better than that.

:00:40.:00:41.

Because the significant weight of that tunnel mouth

:00:42.:00:44.

The original plan for the area was for the line to Leeds to run

:00:45.:00:54.

north of the village along the River Aire on a viaduct.

:00:55.:00:57.

At a consultation, that has now been partially shelved in favour

:00:58.:01:00.

of a 1km-long tunnel beneath Woodlesford.

:01:01.:01:01.

The people we spoke to at today's meeting say that will

:01:02.:01:04.

The fact that the area cannot support a traffic jam at the moment

:01:05.:01:09.

means we are going to be affected hugely by the logistical

:01:10.:01:11.

impacts of planning, preparation and everything.

:01:12.:01:21.

Not to mention the fact that they will be tunnelling

:01:22.:01:24.

hyperbarically, so at pressure, underneath our town.

:01:25.:01:25.

Is going to take years, 10, 15 years, never mind the initial

:01:26.:01:28.

construction which is going to take at least 6.

:01:29.:01:31.

It is a decimation of this community for 20 years,

:01:32.:01:33.

People obviously are concerned to know what the impact

:01:34.:01:39.

will be around properties, around the highways and visually.

:01:40.:01:41.

So we've got lots of information here to share with them.

:01:42.:01:45.

We've got a sound booth that people can go and listen

:01:46.:01:48.

to what a high-speed train sounds like.

:01:49.:01:51.

So there is lots of really good information that

:01:52.:01:53.

hopefully will inform them about what we're doing.

:01:54.:01:55.

HS2 will hold more of these events in Yorkshire in the coming weeks.

:01:56.:02:00.

The hope - to enable concerned members of the public to make

:02:01.:02:03.

an informed contribution to the public consultations on HS2

:02:04.:02:05.

A teenager has appeared in court in Sheffield

:02:06.:02:12.

charged with the murder of 16-year-old Leonne Weeks.

:02:13.:02:15.

Her body was found on a path in Dinnington,

:02:16.:02:18.

He'll appear at Sheffield Crown Court on February 17.

:02:23.:02:33.

:02:39.:02:40.

Football and Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-1 to Brighton last night

:02:41.:02:47.

Wednesday drew level just before half time

:02:48.:02:53.

with a own-goal from Brighton, but a late dramatic late winner gave

:02:54.:02:56.

the Seagulls the victory five minutes from time.

:02:57.:02:58.

Wednesday had two players sent off, the defeat leaves them

:02:59.:03:00.

:03:01.:03:07.
