Gatwick will operate 100,000 more flights as part of a £2.1billion expansion plan Business

Unlike Heathrow’s proposed expansion plans, Mr Wingate explained that transport links – such as the nearby M23 motorway and the rail link to central London – would not be affected by the redevelopment.

Heathrow is preparing to resubmit plans for its third runway after being mired in legal challenges since Parliament formally approved it in 2018. Its expansion will require the M25 to be unearthed and relocated.

Activists have complained that additional flights will mean the impact of noise pollution on more residents in rural Sussex and Surrey.

Environmentalists, meanwhile, say the expansion is at odds with the UK’s pledge to be net zero by 2050. Aviation is responsible for around 2.5% of global carbon emissions .

The government’s own advisers, the Climate Change Committee, have said there should be no airport expansion and a UK-wide plan has been put in place to control emissions.

Nonetheless, Mr Wingate said he was confident to secure clearance for the Gatwick expansion, which will ultimately need to be approved by ministers.

Tim Norwood, airport planning director, added: “Planning applications must align with government policy. Government policy on this subject therefore makes the best use of it and it is therefore entirely in line with [that].

“The job has four tests. And we discussed it with them. We said look, we can demonstrate how we respond to each of your four tests. And they said as long as you can demonstrate that [they would be supportive].”

Met Office heat and health warning as temperatures hit 30C UK News

The UK Health Safety Agency (UKHSA) and the Met Office issued a yellow warning for six English regions over the weekend.

The warning will remain in effect Friday through Sunday.

The Met Office has forecast temperatures of 27°C to 28°C on Friday and around 30°C on Saturday.

The regions included in the yellow alert are:

  • London
  • South East
  • East Midlands
  • West Midlands
  • east of england
  • Yorkshire and the Humber

Expected high temperatures will be short-lived, followed by thunderstorms, but if reached, there are likely to be impacts on the health and social services sector.

Under the new HHA system introduced by the UKHSA and the Met Office, a yellow alert means any impact is likely to include increased use of health services by vulnerable populations and increased health risk for older people from over 65 or people with pre-existing health conditions, including respiratory and cardiovascular disease.

Dr Agostinho Sousa, Head of Extreme Events and Health Protection at UKHSA, said: “This weekend it is important that everyone takes reasonable precautions while enjoying the sunshine.

“The predicted high temperatures are expected to be short-lived, but could primarily affect people over 65 or those with pre-existing health conditions. If you have more vulnerable friends, family or neighbours, it is important to monitor them and make sure they are aware of the forecast and are following the necessary advice.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Harris said: “Temperatures will rise from Friday, with a plume of continental air allowing temperatures to reach, and possibly locally exceed, 30C in parts of England Friday and Saturday. Additionally, nighttime temperatures will remain high, especially in cities, resulting in an uncomfortably hot night for some.

“Temperatures are expected to start dropping from the west on Saturday and more widely on Sunday as showers and thunderstorms sweep the northeast across the country.”

House of the Dragon filming sparks frustration after ‘total disrespect’ for locals | United Kingdom | News UK News

House of the Dragon (HOTD) are stepping up filming efforts across Gwynedd, Conwy and Anglesey, and the excitement is palpable. As the stars of the series descend on the various sites, some locals have expressed concern about the impact on their beloved sites.

The latest snapshots capture breathtaking coastal scenes near historic Penmon Priory in Anglesey. Parts of the beach were temporarily closed to the public, giving way to the filming of heavily armed troopers galloping across fields.

Likewise, access to Dinorwig’s quarry in Gwynedd has been restricted as the team prepares for two days of explosive filming, due to begin on Thursday.

One of the most important sites is the Trefor granite quarry on the Llŷn peninsula. Here, the remains of the ancient works have been transformed into a formidable fortress, believed to be Dragonstone Castle, seat of House Targaryen.

Filming has been underway for some time, with glimpses of a ritual rock being used for a wedding and cremation. Emma D’Arcy, who plays Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen in HOTD Season 2, recently shared an Instagram Story hinting at their current presence at Trefor.

Film crews were also spotted in various locations in Eryri (Snowdonia), including the scenic Ogwen Valley. In Dolwyddelan, Conwy, the aftermath of a fierce battle scene came to life with fake corpses of men and horses strewn near broken carts. Recently the trails around Llyn Y Gader, near the village of Rhyd-Ddu in Eryri, were temporarily closed.

However, the real spectacle is expected at Dinorwig’s Quarry, which has been transformed into an epic battlefield setting. Photos of the set have surfaced, showing the scale of the production. On Tuesday evening, additional supplies of food, water and equipment were delivered in preparation for the early start of today’s filming.

It is assumed that the Battle of Rook’s Rest, the script’s first major Civil War conflict, will be filmed at this location. This battle features intense clashes between war dragons, promising an awe-inspiring visual experience.

While plenty of photos have emerged from the quarry, not everyone is thrilled with the disruption to this popular destination for walkers and history buffs. A local individual, keen to capture the beauty of the quarry on camera, has expressed disappointment after being “aggressively” stopped by a security guard. The claims prompted Warner Brothers Discovery, the production company behind HOTD, to request to fix the issue.

In a series of tweets, the frustrated walker said: ‘As someone who regularly walks this route in Dinorwic’s career, I’m disappointed in the complete lack of respect for local residents by members of your production team, including some think they are above the law.

“While I was taking pictures I was aggressively accosted by a security guard who told me I was not allowed to take pictures even though I was on a public right of way. you please ensure that your team members familiarize themselves with local laws which do not give them any power to prevent such photographs from accessing public rights of way.”

Problems with road access to Newborough Forest also irritated visitors during the filming of HOTD on Llanddwyn beach. As a beach in Penmon was closed for filming this week, a few dissenting voices questioned whether Anglesey would benefit financially from the disruption. However, the majority of locals welcome HOTD and recognize the potential spinoffs it brings.

A resident of Pentraeth said: “Of course the island brings in money. Where do you think a lot of these people stay, eat, hang out when they’re not on set? And when the show is broadcast, people often visit the location where the filming took place.”

For many it is an “exciting time” to be in North Wales. Recent filming plans in and around Llandudno have already generated excitement, and this week the cameras returned to Llanddwyn, Anglesey. One local said: ‘North Wales is back in the filmmaker’s catalog of awesome places!’

Adding to the excitement, another key HOTD character, Steve Toussaint, who plays Corlys Velaryon, was spotted filming at Beaumaris Pier in Anglesey. Speculation among HOTD enthusiasts suggests he may have moved from Penmon, where a man in Velaryon armor and a wig was photographed traveling in a boat.

Studio HOTD HBO has been approached for comment on Dinorwig’s career complaint. Council for Cyngor Gwynedd declined to comment.
