Cabinet minister Justine Greening, whose south west London constituency could be affected by any increase in flights, has claimed that expansion is "undeliverable both democratically, politically and legally".

Zac Goldsmith, a frontrunner in the race to be the Tory candidate to replace Boris Johnson as mayor next year, has threatened to resign and trigger a by-election if the Government gives the green light to a third runway.

Jiu-Jitsu club's tribute to engineer killed in Tunisia attack

Chris Dyer and wife wife Gina Van Dort.

Chris Dyer has been named as another of the British victims killed in the Sousse atack.

He was on holiday with his wife Gina Van Dort when he was gunned down. His wife was seriously injured in the attack, but clung on to her dead husband's hand as paramedics tried to get her to safety, according to reports.

Mr Dyer, an engineer from Watford in north London, suffered from reactive arthritis, but was a sports fan and member of the Watford Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

The club released a montage video of Mr Dyer, believed to be 32, on their Facebook page, and wrote: "It is with great sorrow that we announce the tragic death of our teammate Chris Dyer as a result of the Tunisia shootings. Our hearts go out to his family. May he rest in peace."
