TORY MP Tim Yeo has added to a growing chorus of disapproval over the government’s blanket ban on a third runway at Heathrow.

The former environment minister told the BBC yesterday that while a decision is delayed, “Britain is falling behind” in the race to increase air travel capacity.

Former Labour chancellor Alistair Darling also criticised the coalition’s stance, adding that “we can’t keep putting this decision off”.
