Tories turn on Johnson as he DODGES showdown Heathrow vote

MPs tonight voted 415 to 119 (main image) in favour of expanding Heathrow with a third runway in an historic step toward ending a decades-long battle over airports. The vote comes in defiance of furious protests a new runway will be a disaster for the environment and a million people living nearby. Heathrow Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye hailed the vote as a 'great day' for Britain within moment of the vote, which effectively gives outline planning permission for the runway. Construction of the £14billion project (bottom right) is still years of and will be subject to detailed planning and likely court challenges. Parliament's Central Lobby was briefly sealed off by police ahead of the vote as the Vote No Heathrow group (top right) chanted and laid on the floor to block MPs moving about. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was ridiculed during the four hour debate after he flew to Afghanistan (inset) to avoid the vote.

Britain sweated in the hottest day of the year so far today as temperatures made it all the way to 84.9F (29C). Forecasters expect the country to experience a heatwave hotter than Rio de Janeiro all week, and the scorching weather has already caused a large moor fire in Saddleworth (top centre) which could be seen 15 miles away in Manchester.

Meanwhile train commuters were warned by Great Western Railway that delays may be caused later this week by speed limits imposed as a safeguard against the tracks buckling.

Under new rules from the City watchdog insurance firms must notify when giving quotes to current and former cancer patients they can get it cheaper from a specialist.
