Boris Johnson has recruited a US mayor to boost his campaign to close Heathrow and build a new airport in Kent, writes Simon Harris.
The cost to London council taxpayers of promoting the controversial "Boris Island" airport scheme is to almost double to £5m.

The Mayor's report on redeveloping the Heathrow site claims 90,000 new jobs could be created as well as homes for 190,000 people.

A Heathrow expansion U-turn by David Cameron would be an "off-the-scale betrayal" a Tory MP has said.
Zac Goldsmith, MP for Richmond Park & North Kingston, whose seat would be affected by a third runway, said the move would make voters question whether the Prime Minister could be trusted, and would be "catastrophic' for Mr Cameron's reputation.
Government-appointed Airports Commission is due to outline its initial thoughts in a report next week. Mr Goldsmith has questioned its independence and suggested that accepting its findings would, in effect, be supporting the expansion of Heathrow.
