Around a hundred protesters staged a die-in protest against the proposed third runway in Terminal 2 at Heathrow airport, on Saturday. The protest was organised by the climate change campaign group 'Reclaim the Power,' who condemn the further expansion of the airport as it can further damage the environment. Demonstrators held banners denouncing the expansion, while some were wearing masks and were joined by a choir, who sang the Beatles "Hey Jude" and "Auld Lang Syne," whilst travellers watched on. The event caused no disruptions to the flights, although put some trouble to the travellers.
