London City Airport will be the focus of an election hustings next week, featuring representatives of all parties standing in Newham.

The meeting, to be held on Monday, May 12, is organised by HACAN East, who represent people living under the flight path.

The expansion of City Airport is under consideration, with a decision due to be made by Newham Council this summer.

John Stewart, the chairman of HACAN East, said: “There is much concern about the continuing expansion of the airport, not just amongst Newham residents but much further afield.

“The large jet planes now using the airport are causing noise problems for people living many miles from the airport.

“This public meeting will be a chance to question budding politicians.”

The hustings will take place at Britannia Village Hall, West Silvertown, at 7.30pm.
