Climate campaigners have begun to put pressure on the government’s plan to expand Heathrow during a 10-day judicial review at the High Court. The case will test if the “government is bound by its own rules,” according to the legal team fighting the plan for a third runway.

On Wednesday, the court heard arguments concerning the climate change implications of the development, brought by climate lawyers Plan B and environmental campaign group Friends of the Earth against Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.
