Historic footpath saved by walkers
A FOOTPATH that is over 150 years old has been saved by a walking group.
The path through Nottingham Midland station, used as a short-cut for more than a century and a half, has been saved by the Ramblers.
Nottingham City Council's bid to close the path was quashed this week after a public inquiry.
The council said the closure was necessary for the redevelopment of the station. The Ramblers and others argued that the plan could be carried out without it. Planning inspector Susan Doran agreed, saying: "The disadvantages and loss to the public through closing the path are such that permanent closure of the footpath is not justified."

A city council spokesperson said: "The decision of the public enquiry means the project team will now look at the best way of incorporating the path into the station redevelopment plan but we do not anticipate that this will cause any delays."
