Birmingham Airport may have second runway ready for 2030

Birmingham Airport has today announced plans for a second runway and terminal, which it hopes to be up and running by 2030.

CEO Paul Kehoe says the airport is losing too many passengers and too much business to Heathrow.

He believes up to 60,000 jobs will be created.
