A high court judge has overturned a ban on the cutting down of trees in the path of the HS2 rail link in Buckinghamshire woodland implemented over concerns a rare species of bat might nest there. The decision came as a blow to anti-HS2 environmental protesters who 11 days ago had secured a high court order stopping the work so that the matter could be examined further. The campaigners say they are planning to take their case to the court of appeal in a bid to overturn the latest ruling.
