Andy Burnham has said Labour will bring HS2 to Manchester despite the party failing to guarantee that the high-speed railway project will go ahead over the weekend.

The Greater Manchester mayor said he has been reassured that the party's commitment to two major northern railway projects has not changed.

It comes after reports last week that the government is considering shelving the northern phase of HS2 amid concerns about spiralling costs and severe delays.

And when asked on BBC One’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg programme yesterday (September 17), senior Labour Party figure Pat McFadden did not commit to completing the controversial project in full either.
