The Bree Louise pub makes way for the HS2

After 15 years of running the Bree Louise pub in Euston - the owners handed over the keys - to make way for the HS2 development.

The station and surrounding area will undergo huge amounts of work to allow for the new rail link to the North.

Those who've seen their homes and businesses fall under compulsory purchase orders say they feel like they've been evicted, and have had no compensation. 

In a statement, HS2 had this to say in response.

'We are negotiating with business owners on a case-by-case basis to establish the value of their property

Where negotiations look likely to continue beyond the date we need to start work, owners may apply for Advance Payments of a portion of the estimated value, which can be paid on the date that ownership is transferred.'
