Formal proposal to build airport in Severn Estuary

The Airport Commission has received a formal proposal to build an international airport in the Severn Estuary, near Caldicot.

If given the go-ahead, it would cost an estimated £5bn and take seven years to build.

The commission will consider 40 proposals for UK airports - including one for a revamped Cardiff Airport - over the next few months.
