£25 million Lydd airport expansion given the go ahead

The High Court has ruled that the expansion of Lydd airport should be allowed to go ahead.

Lydd given the go-ahead for expansion

Just a day after the closure of Manston, another airport in Kent has been given clearance for expansion.

The £25m project at Lydd will include a runway extension and new terminal building. Some campaigners say it could harm the wildlife around Dungeness. But a judge dismissed their legal challenge this morning.

ITV Meridian spoke to Hani Mutlaq from the Airport.
