Angry campaigners staged a dramatic protest outside County Hall in Beverley on Wednesday as East Riding Council decided they would no longer protect the route of a proposed rail link between Hull and York.

The group want the council to preserve the route’s protected status which was granted in 2005 with a view to opening the line, which would run via Pocklington, Market Weighton and Stamford Bridge, again at some point in the future.

However, the council’s decision will now open up the route to developers, provided the East Riding Draft Local Plan is formally adopted.

Full story in next week’s Pocklington Post (16 January).
