Newham Council mobbed

Heathrow campaigners and environmentalists from around London joined forces with the local group Fight the Flights on Wednesday to protest against a 50% increase in flights at City Airport in a flashmob outside Newham Town Hall.

It coincided with a Newham Council hearing which as expected approved the expansion – but campaigners vowed it’s just the beginning of their fight. For the latest information see the Fight the Flights blog.
