Possible alterations to flight paths to and from Gatwick Airport have been revealed.

The airport said no new communities will be flown over, with the exception of those affected by a potential new departure route to the west of the airport.

A 12-week consultation on the changes will finish on 15 August.

Gatwick has submitted plans for a second runway to the Airports Commission.

Tom Denton, head of corporate responsibility at Gatwick said: "We want to minimise noise for as many people as we possibly can - and where that's not possible - offer respite options as a mitigating measure.

"We urge all local communities to have their say in this second phase so we can benefit as many people as possible."
