MP Grant Shapps has stated that Prime Minister Theresa May should make a decision on whether to approve a third runway for Heathrow Airport.

Mr Shapps spoke as chairman of the British Infrastructure Group of MPs (BIG).

He said: “We believe that the decision on runway capacity should be made immediately and that there shouldn’t be any further delays.”

The Government has delayed the decision on whether to build a new runway until 2017-2018.
