£96bn for rail but Leeds HS2 leg due to be scrapped

BBC News says A £96bn rail improvement programme will help transform services in the Midlands and northern England, the government has said ahead of the expected scrapping of part of the HS2 scheme.

Local service upgrades, bringing faster journeys, will happen up to 10 years earlier than planned, ministers say.

It comes as businesses reacted angrily to reports the East Midlands-Leeds HS2 high-speed line would not be built.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due to unveil the plans later.
