IT was interesting to see the photograph of Transport Minister Chris Grayling at Winsford Station with our town councillors.

He is correct in saying that HS2 would lead to more services at Winsford.

The cost of this will be £100 billion of tax payers’ money, plus massive loss of food-producing greenbelt, plus thousands thrown out of their homes, plus destruction of beautiful countryside, plus major disruption to roads during construction.

Our councillors did a wonderful job of humouring and not making him feel inadequate.
