The Airport Commission has reported back; a new runway at either Heathrow or Gatwick could create up to 77,000 jobs and £147 billion for the UK economy. The decision will have a significant knock-on effect to the economy of the entire UK, and it will impact upon us here in the North East of England. I would urge the government to now take a decision quickly on a matter which they should have resolved years ago.
We’re all used to flights being delayed; this time it’s not a flight but an entire runway running a long way behind schedule!
