Court set to make 'significant' ruling today over Heathrow expansion

Climate change campaigners are gathering outside The Royal Courts of Justice awaiting a ruling over Heathrow's expansion.

The Court of Appeal is set to give its judgment on whether the planned expansion takes into account climate change policies.

Extinction Rebellion activists are out in force outside the London court and said the ruling has 'huge significance internationally as well as for the UK'

Plan B, one of several parties bringing legal challenges against Heathrow expansion, has argued that the proposed expansion is illegal because it failed to take into account Paris Agreement temperature limit of 1.5 degrees C and 'well below' 2 degrees C.

"A ruling in Plan B's favour tomorrow morning would be groundbreaking," said Extinction Rebellion.
