Divided opinion over Southampton Airport expansion

Southampton Airport's plans to more than double passenger numbers with a longer runway and bigger planes have been backed by 60 per cent of people who responded to a public consultation.

The airport says it will also mean more holiday destinations - and more jobs - from 950 to 1500 workers by 2037. But more flights mean more noise and an increased strain on the local infrastructure. Not everyone thinks it's a good idea.
