Legal battle over Heathrow expansion begins
The 5 challenges against the 3rd Runway started today at The Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand, London at 10:30am. But before that, there was an early morning demonstration outside in the front of the Courts. There were a good number of attendees including John McDonnell MP, Zac Goldsmith MP, Andy Slaughter MP and various Council leaders, including Ray Puddifoot who is leader of the Hillingdon Council - where Heathrow is situated. The new ‘Stop 700 More’ T-shirts and banners made a good show for the photographers – thanks to Neil for getting the group going and producing such an eye-catching design. We had several new supporters sign up this morning.
