Unions join call for Heathrow expansion

Unions joined forces with company directors today to warn that 140,000 jobs are at risk without urgent action to increase the UK's aviation capacity.

Tourism, exports and foreign investment will also be hit in the next decade unless the Government supports expansion of Heathrow, according to new research.

The new study, by Oxford Economics, said the UK economy could be losing £8.5bn a year by 2021.
