Railway line 'would cut traffic'
A campaign has been launched to reopen a railway line in north Worcestershire which has been out of use for 30 years.

The campaigners, from Stourport, have said reinstating the line from Hartlebury station to Mitton would cut traffic on the town's roads.

They have also said it would be much more environmentally-friendly.

Wyre Forest District Council has said it is looking at how popular the line would be and how much it would cost to get it running.

Campaigner Steven Roehead said the track could be connected to the area's mainline, allowing people to travel from there to all over the country.

He added that he hoped the cash for the project could come from councils, the government and local businesses.
