Transport Sec: 'Cross-party consensus against third Heathrow runway'

The Transport Secretary Justine Greening has told BBC Breakfast that she is against a third runway at Heathrow, after a strong attack on the Prime Minister over the issue by the Conservative chair of the Commons energy and climate change committee.

I think there's a cross-party political consensus that a third runway at Heathrow is not the right thing to do.
