The firm behind proposals to build a Kent airport on the Goodwin Sands off the Deal coast have outlined their ideas to business leaders and the media in Calais.

Maritime engineers Beckett Rankine say the £39 billion four-runway airport would benefit millions of people in northern France and become a hub for Northern Europe.

The plan - one of several being considered in an ongoing government review into airport capacity - is opposed by the local MP and environmentalists.
