Heathrow row: George Osborne 'We do need airport capacity'

Downing Street is making clear it remains opposed to a third runway at Heathrow Airport, despite growing pressure to change policy.

Tory backbencher Tim Yeo has called on David Cameron to show whether he was a "man or a mouse" by backing the idea, but Transport Secretary Justine Greening said expanding Heathrow was "not right" for the UK.

Chancellor George Osborne said the Government accepts additional airport capacity is needed and would be "talking to people" in the coming months to find out where it should be.
