Memorial service honours people whose remains will be exhumed for HS2 project

A memorial service has been held for the 60,000 people buried near Euston station whose bodies will be exhumed as part of the HS2 rail project.

St James' Gardens was used as a burial ground from 1790 to 1853. The plans were strongly opposed by people living nearby who had campaigned to save the site.
