The calls against expanding Heathrow can onlygrow louder now the Government has said it will go ahead and build a third runway.
Hounslow really is on the frontline of this fight. All 214,000 residents are affected by noise pollution from Heathrow, and all have to breathe air which contains dangerously high levels of pollutants, particularly nitrogen dioxide.
The Government is destroying homes, risking health and well-being, and showing a complete disregard for the environment: the 90 per cent of Hounslow residents who oppose making Heathrow any bigger know that better than anyone.
Let's make sure that, despite the Government's decision, the voice of that vast majority continues to be heard.
