A DRIVER had to cut free from a car after a collision in Ruislip High Street last Wednesday morning (September 2).
Police were called shortly before 8am by London Ambulance Service to reports of a road traffic collision and two fire engines also attended. An LFB HACAN, which campaigns for residents under the Heathrow flight paths, has welcomed cross party support against a third runway at Heathrow.
The Coalition Against Heathrow Expansion includes the Mayor of London, Conservative MPs Zac Goldsmith, Adam Afriyie and Tania Mathias, Labour MPs John McDonnell, Ruth Cadbury, Andy Slaughter and Kate Hoey as well as five councils and spokesman said: “We were called at 8am to Ruislip High Street and we were there until 8.40am.
“Firefighters cut the roof off one of the cars to get the driver out of one of the vehicles, who was removed by firefighters and the London Ambulance Service safely from the vehicle and taken campaign groups including Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth.
The campaign will be delivering over 1.6m flyers across London and the South East to people who could be impacted by a third runway.
It is also organising a mass rally in Central London on October 10.
HACAN Chair John Stewart, who will be fronting the rally, said, “This leaflet drop and rally is the biggest effort ever by opponents of to hospital.”
Two fire engines, from Ruislip and from Harrow, as well as a fire rescue unit from Wembley attended.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “No one was seriously injured with no injuries being treated as life-threatening or lifechanging.” No arrests were made. Heathrow expansion.
“It shows that, despite the recommendation of the Airports Commission that a third runway goes ahead, we are confident that we can bury the proposal once and for all.”
Later this the Government will decide whether to endorse the Airports Commission’s recommendation of a third runway or to create a second runway at rival airport Gatwick.
