Plans have been unveiled for a four-runway airport in Oxfordshire.

The proposals have been submitted by Pleiade Associates to the government's Airports Commission looking at airport expansion in the South East.

The airport includes a terminal for 125 million passengers a year, a hotel and an eight-platform train station.

An estimated 720,000 flights could operate from the airport annually which is expected to cost about £18.2bn to develop.

The proposal is one of 50 put forward, with a shortlist due to be compiled later in the year.
