Gatwick Airport has released an artist's impression of how a second runway at the site might look.

The airport has submitted a proposal for a second runway – positioned to the south of the current site to the Airports Commission.

It said it had provided "a robust and compelling case" for why the next runway should be built there, and added, it is the "most affordable, sustainable and deliverable solution for London and for the UK".
