Nick Coates said

We are all aware that there is a Climate Emergency. So why is any sensible government allowing extra runways or airport expansion?  All the councils in the West of England, and many further afield, have declared a Climate Emergency. The Committee on Climate Change highlights the fact that the aviation sector is on a path to generate more greenhouse gas emissions than any other sector. This is why I am working with others to stop Bristol Airport Expansion.

I was delighted to join with the families of Wrington and nearby villages to support them in this protest. This impacts residents along the Chew Valley, in Keynsham and surrounding villages like Compton Dando, who are all on the flight path. ”
