Plane Stupid activists block Heathrow tunnel

Thurs, 26th Nov 2015

The main entrance into Heathrow airport, a two-lane tunnel, was blocked by climate change activists for most of this morning, 26th November.

At 7.40am, a van was driving across both lanes and three members of anti-airport expansion campaign group Plane Stupid jumped out and unfurled a banner quoting David Cameron's election promise: a'No Ifs, No Buts, No Third Runway'. The activists then locked their bodies to the van.
