UK's Heathrow bosses outline expansion plans

Government says no decision until after the 2015 election but project backers say third runaway is needed.

    London's Heathrow airport has outlined proposals for an extra runway that would allow 260,000 more flights annually.

    Supporters of the project say a third runway is essential for Britain, but many are against the idea.

    The government says there will be no decision until after the 2015 election.
