Poll says ‘yes’ to more airport capacity – but not at Heathrow

The leader of an anti-Heathrow expansion campaign group has slammed politicians for being “out of tune” with the public following a recent poll.

The independent survey by Ipsos Mori, published on July 24, revealed a majority of people in the UK want to see more airport capacity in the country, but support for a third runway was the lowest.

With 60% of people in agreement that Britain needs to either build a new airport or runway, a third of people are against any expansion at all.

Of those who favour expansion, 30% believe a new airport should be built, while 24% said Gatwick should be expanded by building a second runway, and 22% want a third runway at Heathrow.
