Judge rejects night flight appeal

A High Court judge has rejected an appeal calling for a reduction in the number of night flights at Heathrow.

Justice Jeremy Sullivan delivered his verdict this afternoon after Richmond, Wandsworth and Windsor and Maidenhead councils took the Department for Transport (DfT) to a judicial review at the Royal Courts of Justice earlier this week to seek a reduction in the number of aircraft allowed to arrive at Heathrow before 6am.

He ruled in favour of the Government, rejecting the review on all grounds.

Night flight councils lose battle

Three councils have lost their High Court claim that the government did not deal with the intrusive effects of aircraft noise at Heathrow at night.

London's Richmond and Wandsworth councils, and Windsor and Maidenhead in Berkshire, had challenged ministers' pronouncements on noise levels.

They wanted judges to overrule decisions on which type of plane, and how many, could land before 0600 BST.

But the High Court said the issues had been dealt with three years ago.
