Readers of The Star have voted more than eight to one for a £43 billion high-speed rail line through Sheffield to be scrapped.

The Star held an online poll as fears were raised the cost of the link could spiral to as much as £80 billion.

The Government says the current figure includes a contingency sum to cover for potential cost rises and the bill should not increase further and could be as little as £28bn.
