'Very strong case for third runway'

The case to expand Heathrow Airport has received a boost.

An influential committee of MPs has backed the argument for a third runway and said a fourth should also be considered.

Anti-Third Runway campaigner Christine Taylor, Louise Ellman MP, chair of the House of Commons Transport Committee, and Conservative Councillor Paul Carter, leader of Kent County Council, appear in this report by Karl Mercer.
