Four South Yorkshire local authorities who are locked in dispute with the government over funding for the South Yorkshire Supertram project will today take their case to London's high court.

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield councils all say the Labour government is going back on a promise made by the former Conservative administration that no part of the cost of the project would fall on local council tax-payers.

The councils say they have no alternative but to pursue the judicial review challenge as attempts to settle the dispute have come to nothing and the financial impact if they are forced to subsidise the Supertram will be substantial.
