A high court judge has rejected Merseytravel's bid on Merseytram.

Neil Scales, chief executive and director general of Merseytravel, said:

'We're very disappointed with the outcome of this case. We will be taking it to the court of appeal.

'It's worth one last throw of the dice for a£311m transport and regeneration scheme.

'We don't regret having to take this action although it is more in sorrow than in anger.

'But there is an important point of law at stake, which affects not just Merseytravel but every PTA in the country. For this reason alone we must appeal.

'But more importantly the people of Merseyside deserve their tram.'
