Heathrow Night Flights

Residents lose fight over Heathrow night flights

Eight people living under the Heathrow flight path pledged yesterday to continue their legal battle against night flights despite losing their case in the European Court of Human Rights.

The court overturned its previous ruling after accepting evidence from the Government that the economic benefits of night flights far outweighed the human rights of those suffering disrupted sleep in their homes beneath the flight path.
