Protesters secretly constructed two tunnels supported by an elaborate “ant
nest” of passages without detection near the site of HS2, embarrassing the
security operation surrounding Britain’s biggest infrastructure project.


Of all the places to prevent HS2 construction happening, Euston would be
right at the bottom of my list. Ancient woodland I can understand but Euston
hasn't been a pleasent cityscape since the 1970s.



I think they just did it to attract attention. They won't have any effect
on HS2 construction, but they figured that they'd attract more journalists
and spectators to a site in central London than to a treehouse deep in the
countryside.
