The film, inspired by Thomas the Tank Engine and titled The Adventures of HS2 – The Great Train Robbery, sees a high speed train ‘hiding from the facts’ in a railway siding.

Scouse stand-up comic John Bishop, a regular TV panel shows, opposes the £50bn line and lent his voice to HS2 Action Alliance production.

Richard Houghton, from the action group, said: “We felt humour was the right approach to highlighting the laughable but depressing reality of HS2 and the very serious issues for current train passengers, the environment and all taxpayers that come with the project.”
