National Grid's plan would see the gas transported underground in liquid form from major power stations in South and North Yorkshire to the east coast.

The gas will then be stored in porous rock beneath the seabed.

The latest proposals will go on show in exhibitions at nine locations along the preferred route of the pipeline.

The project, known as carbon capture, transportation and storage (CCS) has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel power stations by up to 90%, according to National Grid.

The underground pipeline would have the capacity to transport up to 17 million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.

It would run from Stainforth in South Yorkshire to Barmston in East Yorkshire.
