The long-awaited decision is postponed

The decision to expand London's Heathrow airport is set to be delayed again.

According to the BBC "The UK government is to defer a decision on airport expansion until the new Conservative Party leader is elected".

Back in July, The Airports Commission released a report supporting a third runway at Heathrow, however in December, Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin said that further environmental research was needed before a final decision was made.

McLoughlin also stated that he expected a decision to be made this summer, but with the recent referendum vote to leave the EU and the resignation of David Cameron, that all-important decision looks to be delayed again.
