Expanding Stansted Airport or building new runways in the Thames Estuary would be more expensive and take more time than developing Heathrow according to a new report out today.

The study, which has been commissioned by Heathrow's owners, claims that adding extra capacity there would be better for tax payers. The report is being submitted to the government's Aviation Commission which is looking at how best to manage airport expansion.
