Climate activists tackle Heathrow


Climate activists from Extinction Rebellion have drawn up plans to use drones to shut London’s Heathrow Airport this summer in a campaign to stop the constructi­on of a third runway at Europe’s busiest airport.

The internal proposal emerged against a backdrop of renewed campaignin­g by environmen­tal groups who argue that expanding Heathrow would be incompatib­le with Britain’s targets to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
