Night flights into Heathrow could double

The number of night flights into Heathrow Airport could double next year as part of plans to ease congestion. Campaign groups have discovered documents from the Davies Commission, which is looking into extra airport capacity in the South East.

Under the scheme the number of arrivals before 6am would rise from 16 to 35. Campaigners say it would cause misery for thousands living under the flightpath. ITV Meridian spoke to Heathrow campaigner, John Stewart.
