Pupils not happy about new runway

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

After years spent talking about it, the government has announced its support for plans to build a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

Lots of protesters are angry about the decision because they say it's bad for the environment and about 700 homes in the area will have to be knocked down to make way for it.

Newsround spoke to pupils at a school that's also facing closure to make way for the expansion to see how they feel about the plans.
