Airport expansion plans on show
Plans to double the size of Bristol Airport will go on public display on Wednesday.

The airport says the 80m scheme is to meet growing demand, but it has been criticised by environmental groups.

If approved, the plans mean a bigger terminal, more car parking and a new hotel to cope with an expected nine million passengers a year.

Campaigners are concerned about increased noise, pollution and traffic in the area.

The plans are available to view at North Somerset Council offices in Weston-super-Mare.
