Boris: 'This is a problem that needs a rapid solution'

London Mayor Boris Johnson: "This is a problem that really needs a rapid solution. What it will mean is that everybody goes into the 2015 election with this Heathrow third runway still on the table, still a potential solution and I don't think that's sensible.

"I think it will cause real convulsions in west London, in all parts of London really because the third runway will bring a dramatic deterioration in the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of people around the city."
