Labour yesterday promised to halt Britain's £18bn road building programme as part of a wide-ranging new programme of environmental policies, reports The Independent (p2).

The policy document 'In Trust for Tomorrow' recommends scrapping plans to widen the M25, but Labour is still in favour of widening the last five miles of the A2 to Dover and improving the A30 in Cornwall.

Labour would also establish for private individuals 'environmental' rights such as clean air and drinking water, and access to open land.

Individuals would be given the power to sue polluting firms and councils to force them to clean up and pay compensation.
