A third runway at Heathrow moved a step closed to becoming a reality yesterday after the Government announced it was backing the project.
There are still a number of hurdles to clear, including a public consultation, legal challenges and a final MP vote, but the airport hopes the controversial new runway will be up and running by 2025.
The project has proved to be hugely divisive, with Slough Borough Council backing the plans and the Royal Borough setting aside £50,000 to fund a judicial review to fight the decision.
As part of campaign to get the project approved, Heathrow produced a CGI video giving an idea of what the expanded airport could look like.
The video flies through terminal buildings, shows transport links and the new runway itself.
