Vote: Should airports be allowed to expand?

Heathrow airport

Controversial plans for a third runway at Heathrow airport have got the go-ahead from the government.

Supporters are happy as they say the new runway will create new jobs and be good for the British economy.

Lots of people are angry though as they think having more flights coming and going will be bad for the environment and very noisy.
