Heathrow Third Runway Victory

Breaking news about a court case.

The High Court ruled on a judicial review brought against the government after it announced support for a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

Local councils, residents and green groups say the decision in favour of the runway was flawed by "conspicuously unfair" public consultations.

The judge to rule the runway cannot go ahead without a further period of full consultation. This is because it contradicts all the talk of reducing emissions.

The judge said 'Its untenable. Without common sense.'

If the Government wants to pursue its plans for Heathrow expansion it must now go back to square one and reconsider the entire case for the runway.

Also today the Government will announce a ban on wild animals from circuses, ending hundreds of years of performing elephants, tigers and lions in the big top.

Another Green victory.
