STAND-UP comedian John Bishop stars in a new anti-HS2 animated video that was launched this week.

The comic is a supporter of the Amersham-based HS2 Action Alliance and provided the voiceover for the video, 'The Adventures of HS2 - the Great Train Robbery'.

In it, Mr Bishop provides the voice of an HS2 train "hiding from the facts" about the project in a railway siding along with three other trains who question the scheme.

Mr Bishop has previously said he is opposed to HS2 - particularly spending "what appears to be a bottomless amount of money" on building the line from London to Birmingham through the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The video, which contains mild bad language, can be viewed at www.hs2actionalliance.org/thefacts/.
