HS2: service held for 60,000 to be exhumed at Euston burial ground
Protesters join clergy to ‘pray for living as well as dead’ around London station, where residents face years of disruption
Protesters against the HS2 rail link have joined clergy in a memorial service to mark the impending exhumation of 60,000 bodies and the felling of 100 century-old trees around Euston station in London.
The service was held behind construction hoardings in St James’ Gardens, a former cemetery, that has been sealed off for station development to serve the £55.7bn HS2 high-speed rail network.
