London Airport
London, Jan 20: The High Court dismissed the local residents charges and gave all clear signal for London city airport to increase the number of annual flights.

In 2008, Newham council granted the London city airport to increase the number of annual flights by 50 percent.

But the local residents formed a group and protested against the permission.

The group argued that the noise pollution level at the airport are already almost unbearable and increase in the number would make them intolerable.

Local authorities said, “they had erred by failing to consult the neighbouring London boroughs of Waltham Forest and Redbridge, or the residents of those boroughs."

The bench comprising Lord Justice Pill and Mr Justice Roderick Evans, rejected both accusations and dismissed the legal challenge.
