The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has called on the government to rule out a third runway at Heathrow, describing the idea as "totally nuts".
Speaking to a protest in West London, Mr Johnson said that the third runway would take "at least 15 years to bring about" and was "completely impractical".
Leaving the European Union would not be "the end of the world" for Britain, London mayor Boris Johnson has said.
Mr Johnson - seen as a possible future rival to David Cameron for the Tory leadership - said that the Government could not put off indefinitely a referendum on Britain's future in the EU.
In an interview with BBC1's The Andrew Marr Show, he said that he would like to see the public given the chance to vote on the issue before the next general election in 2015 although he did not expect it to happen.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson has said Lord Justice Leveson's imminent report on the future of press regulation should be taken "very seriously".
He told Murnaghan: "The present system has obviously failed and it doesn't carry confidence with the public at large."
He added that he did not want politicians influencing the media's agenda.
