Plans for massive expansion at Southampton Airport

Radical plans to expand Southampton Airport have been announced. Passenger numbers would more than double with almost 20,000 extra flights a year. And the runway would be extended to cope with extra traffic.

The airport says it will draw passengers from across Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire and will allow them to compete with Heathrow and Gatwick.

But not everyone is happy. Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse reports.
