Heathrow and Gatwick airports have unveiled revised expansion plans in an attempt to secure permission to build the UK's next runway.

Heathrow has proposed improved compensation worth £550m for those affected by its plans for a third runway.

Gatwick has said its plans will keep fares low and create 120,000 jobs.

Both have submitted their plans to the Airports Commission, charged with deciding how to expand UK air capacity.

BBC London's transport correspondent Tom Edwards spoke to John Holland-Kaye, from Heathrow Airport, The Venerable Amatu Onundu Christian-Lwuagwu, the vicar of St Mary's Church, Nick Dunn from Gatwick and Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
