Around 100 campaigners opposed to a third runway at Heathrow staged a final protest today ahead of a Government decision expected next month.

The action took place at Terminal 2.

The Airports Commission has recommended Heathrow expand but there are concerns over more flights, noise and emissions.

ITV Meridian spoke to campaigner John Stewart.

The Government have been considering the report and has said it intends to make a decision before the end of the year.

Heathrow say it is the best option and it will create tens of thousands of jobs and prove a multi-billion pound economic boost.

They say most people support the £17 billion pounds third runway scheme.

ITV Meridian spoke to Matt Gorman from Heathrow Airport.
