DETAILS about the controversial HS2 rail line will be revealed at a meeting on Thursday.

Michael Dugher, the MP for Barnsley East, is encouraging people to attend.

The meeting, taking place at Kirk Balk School in Hoyland at 6pm, follows an event which was held at Barnsley Town Hall on Saturday.

HS2 Ltd staff will attend the meeting, along with engineers, tunnelling engineers, and property compensation and noise experts.

Mr Dugher said: "I would encourage people in Barnsley to go to the event, which will help provide clear, accurate and up-to-date information about HS2 plans in our area and what impact there could be."
