Warning of potential delays at Heathrow airport in June and July
Climate protestors threaten to shut down Heathrow for ten days this summer
Climate protestors from the Extinction Rebellion group are reportedly planning to disrupt Heathrow airport unless the government agrees to scrap plans for a new runway.
If the protest goes ahead, it is expected to take place on 18th June, and then again for up to ten days from 1st July.
Last update 3rd June 2019
The climate protest is not currently causing any problems at Heathrow airport.
The BBC has reported that the Extinction Rebellion group allegedly behind the protest is planning to use drones to disrupt flights in and out of the airport, a suggestion that the airport has condemned as "reckless" and with the potential to "endanger lives".
