Businesses call for airport expansion response

A group of business leaders has criticised the government's lack of response to a report on airport expansion.

In a letter to the Sunday Times, they said it was "unacceptable" that the government had not responded to the Airports Commission's interim report.

The commission shortlisted three options for expanding the UK's airport capacity in December.

The Department for Transport said it would respond to the interim report "shortly".

BBC London's Nick Beake spoke to Gavin Hayes, from the campaign group Let Britain Fly.
