Cabinet approves Heathrow expansion



Controversial plans for a third runway at Heathrow Airport have been approved by ministers.

 
The government's economic sub-committee, chaired by Prime Minister Theresa May, backed the plans which were then approved by her full cabinet.


Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said it was a "historic moment".


Announcing £2.6bn in compensation for residents and noise abatement measures he said it would only proceed if air quality obligations were met.
