MP David Morris has been invited to speak to the Department of Transport about his idea for a transport tunnel under Morecambe Bay by minister John Hayes.

Mr Hayes said: “Any man who advocates tunnelling at this scale certainly holds an idea at very great depth indeed.

“This is a matter for local councils—for Lancashire and Cumbria—and it is for them to consult their local enterprise partnerships. Nevertheless, I am interested in the scheme and am happy to invite my hon. Friend to the Department to discuss it with officials and see what can be done.”
