Will Londoners back Zac?



The MP for Richmond Park has handed in his nomination form to be the Conservative Party's candidate for Mayor of London.

Mr Goldsmith lists building new schools, supporting local high streets and stopping Heathrow expansion, to protecting playing fields and securing funds for Kew Gardens as his main priorities over the last five years as MP.

He says he wants to take that same hard work and commitment to City Hall- but first I must earn my party's nomination.

Last month over 70% of residents in the Richmond Park constituency gave their backing to his running for the Mayoral role.

Inquest into death of boy from Chertsey to consider cyanide theory
The inquest into the death of a boy from Chertsey during heavy floods will consider cyanide theory.

Last February, Zane Gbangbola and his parents were taken ill at home in Thameside after water flooded their house.

Zane had suffered a heart attack and later died in hospital; his father Kye remains paralysed from the waist down.

His parents believe he died after floodwater became contaminated by cyanide gas which leaked from a former landfill site.

Further pre-inquest hearing will be held later this year before the full inquest next January.

UPDATED: Third runway "should go ahead at Heathrow"
Heathrow has been named as the preferred site for London's new runway.

The proposal is expected to be backed - but only if it meets stringent conditions on air quality, noise pollution and carbon emissions.

The three year study into expansion plans by the Airports Commission has recommended a runway built to the northwest of Heathrow would ensure the UK's "long term prosperity" while resulting in the loss of fewer homes.

Other options were to extend an existing runway at Heathrow or to build a second runway at Gatwick. Both airports are operating near capacity.

The final recommendation has remained a closely guarded secret.

It suggests expansion at Heathrow could create 70,000 new jobs and result in airlines flying to 40 new flight destinations by 2050.

Sir Howard Davies, the Commission chairman, said: "Heathrow is best-placed to provide the type of capacity which is most urgently required: long-haul destinations to new markets. It provides the greatest benefits for business passengers, freight operators and the broader economy."

The report leaves open the possibility of expansion at Gatwick but concludes the economic benefits would be considerably smaller. The building of a new airport in the Thames estuary was considered to be "unfeasibly expensive".

MP for Richmond Park Zac Goldsmith has said he will resign if a third runway does go ahead at Heathrow.



Lord True, the leader of Richmond Council has slammed the report, saying:

This report is bad news for West Londoners - disastrous news at every level, the result of a deeply cynical manoeuvre to delay a decision for five years to enable a promise everyone in West London believed to be dropped.

This report is a cunning trade-off, which is aimed to appease local residents, as it is well known that we are bitterly opposed to night flights. We have long maintained that there should be a night ban. That should stand on its own merits.

However, in this borough, under this proposal, the benefits of a night ban for our affected communities would be at the unacceptable expense of even more flights during the rest of the day.

We need to be protecting our communities both day and night, and not playing a three card trick to smuggle in other harmful impacts. Heathrow’s noise and air quality pollution is already in breach of the acceptable.

Speaking on behalf of the hundred thousand people who voted NO in the referendum run by us and Hillingdon and the millions of people across London who have said NO to any expansion of Heathrow, we will consider any action, within the law, to fight these recommendations.

Pro Heathrow campaigners are adamant residents do want expansion.

Rob Gray, Back Heathrow Campaign Co-ordinator, said:
The silent majority has spoken. Thousands of residents, community groups, MPs, businesses, airlines and unions have sent a clear message that they want the UK's only hub airport to grow.

Heathrow's critics like Boris Johnson and Zac Goldsmith should now do the decent thing and apologise for their shameful attacks on an airport that has overwhelming majority support following an open and transparent process. Now we need action and for some politicians to catch up with public opinion on this vital issue.


The MP for Brentford and Isleworth Ruth Cadbury, is unhappy with the report’s recommendation – she has given us her reaction earlier.



Stay tuned to hear more reaction.
