Rail campaigners fighting for a link between Northampton and Bedford have launched an online petition.

The English Regional Transport Association wants to ensure that the land and track that would be used for the link are protected and is calling for the route to be re-opened.

The group says the route would link Northampton and Cambridge, which it says has been identified as a priority in local growth plans.

Campaigner Richard Pull has launched the petition calling on the Secretary of the State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin, to re-open the line.
