Protesters Stage a 'Die In' Protest in London Heathrow Airpott

More than a hundred people demonstrated at London's Heathrow Airport on Saturday, including dozens who took part in a 'die-in' at one terminal, The demonstration
comes just weeks before the government is due to decide where to build a new runway.
After a decade of reviews and U-turns, the government is expected to rule in mid-October on whether to build a third runway at Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, or at its smaller London rival Gatwick. Protesters lay on the floor of Heathrow's Terminal 2, with many wearing white masks in a so-called die-in to highlight the impact of air travel on climate change and pollution levels.
A spokesman said: 'The peaceful demonstration that took place Heathrow earlier today involved a small group of people, and the airport operated as normal throughout. Check-in and security were not affected.
