"Boris Johnson's father was forced to leave his multi-million pound home to make way for HS2 , whilst Ruislip residents have moved away without receiving a penny.

75-year-old Stanley Johnson, father of the Mayor of London and Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP, was left 'tearful' and 'heartbroken' after being left with no option but to sell his 'life's investment' to the Department for Transport.

The five-bed mansion was set to lose almost all of its value due to being just 10 metres from the controversial new subterranean track.

Stanley - who bought the house for £2.5million in 2007 - reluctantly decided to move out after qualifying for HS2's 'need to sell' scheme after saying he wanted to be nearer to his 93-year-old mother-in-law."
