Newham Residents Speak Out

ITV were down amongst the residents last Wednesday, asking how they felt about the airport. And guess what? Not one was for expansion. They spoke about noise and pollution, and how it had got worse over the last couple of years.

It's just a shame that their elected Councillors cared so little about them, not even enough to represent their views to the 'Whip Master' Sir Robin Wales, who allegedly dictates to his councillors what they should do and say. See the link below, you will need to allow the ad to play before the news feature, but we hope you will find this article as balanced and representative as we did.

And there' s more: our very own local resident and FTF campaigner, Neil Pearce was down in the Royal Docks with BBC London, further highlighting the devastating effect the expansion would have on the community. See link below
