The five main party candidates to replace Boris Johnson as Mayor next year have used a rally in Parliament Square to re-state their opposition to any further expansion at Heathrow airport.
Earlier this year a commission established by the UK Government backed the building of a new third runway at Heathrow subject to “legally binding” limits on noise levels.
Opponents of expansion say these conditions are insufficient to resolve concerns about the impact of increasing capacity at the airport on those living nearby and under the flightpath.
Ministers are due to make a final decision on whether to approve the runway this year.
Speaking at today’s rally were Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith, Liberal Democrat Caroline Pidgeon, Labour’s Sadiq Khan, Green party candidate Sian Berry and UKIP’s Peter Whittle.
