The government is being urged to speed up compensation payments to elderly people affected by the HS2 high-speed rail line.

In October, some people living in Long Eaton, complained about wide-ranging valuations of the same property.

Speaking in the Commons, MP Maggie Throup, whose Erewash constituency includes the town, said: "We may get there in the end with compensation...but it takes so long."

Transport secretary Chris Grayling said his department was working as fast as it could to finalise the East Midlands leg of HS2.

He added that the government would be doing everything it could to "minimise the impact" on residents.

Speaking after the confirmation of the route on Monday, Ms Throup told Parliament: "Some of my residents, who have lived in their homes for 40 years or more, are only being offered two thirds of the value of their home [as compensation].

"They cannot afford to buy another home.

The government has said its existing compensation scheme offers homeowners the "un-blighted" value of their home plus 10%.
