Good evening from BBC London News. It's arguably the biggest and most

:00:12.:00:16.

difficult decision facing London and the Home Counties: how to

:00:17.:00:21.

Today, the Prime Minister spelled out the timetable for that decision

:00:22.:00:27.

in what appears to be a movd to stave off a possible

:00:28.:00:31.

rebellion from her MPs and Conservative Councils,

:00:32.:00:33.

Our political editor, Tim Donovan, reports.

:00:34.:00:39.

No decision formally made, but Heathrow now firm favourite

:00:40.:00:41.

No decision formally made, yet legal moves already started

:00:42.:00:45.

Four councils have reminded the Government that a 2010

:00:46.:00:49.

High Court judgment still ndeds to be respected.

:00:50.:00:54.

The leader of Hillingdon, one of those councils,

:00:55.:00:57.

says it required clear answdrs on air pollution and noise `nd any

:00:58.:01:02.

move towards a third runway must still first go

:01:03.:01:05.

through an extensive consultation process.

:01:06.:01:09.

What we notified them of last week was if you attempt to put

:01:10.:01:12.

this through Parliament, without dealing with the matters

:01:13.:01:15.

that we raised in 2010, which are still valid,

:01:16.:01:18.

that's judge made law on the Government, you cannot

:01:19.:01:21.

The Government cannot break the law, no matter what party's in control,

:01:22.:01:30.

That's what the judge told them in 2010 and that's what will happen

:01:31.:01:35.

if they try to move on without dealing with those issues.

:01:36.:01:38.

It's the council's contention that adding 250,000 new flights ` year

:01:39.:01:41.

at Heathrow would make it ilpossible to meet legal requirements on noise

:01:42.:01:45.

and air quality and opponents are readying themselves agahn

:01:46.:01:50.

with the councils forming an alliance with environmental

:01:51.:01:55.

It's the same very broad co`lition that came out against the third

:01:56.:02:00.

runway before and that included Theresa May,

:02:01.:02:02.

it included Boris Johnson, it included many Cabinet

:02:03.:02:04.

ministers, and the arguments are stronger today.

:02:05.:02:06.

But here in Boris Johnson's Uxbridge, in the borough

:02:07.:02:09.

of Hillingdon, the arguments by no means go the same way.

:02:10.:02:14.

It's good for the area. It's good for employment.

:02:15.:02:20.

I know people say there's already one or two runways there

:02:21.:02:25.

You know, but people in the area have actually got used

:02:26.:02:29.

If you're living on the flight path you'd probably understand the reason

:02:30.:02:36.

I like the idea of it because we're London,

:02:37.:02:40.

we need the added attraction that we can deal with

:02:41.:02:43.

the growth in this country, in terms of visitors etc.

:02:44.:02:45.

But the environmental issue is a major concern to myself.

:02:46.:02:51.

Expansion at Heathrow is more economical for the area.

:02:52.:02:56.

You just get used to it, other people will get used to that?

:02:57.:02:59.

Heathrow's gain will be Gatwick s pain unless, of course...

:03:00.:03:05.

The sensible decision for the Government next week,

:03:06.:03:08.

which I hope it's what they will come to, I hope, is to see them give

:03:09.:03:12.

the green light to both Gatwick and Heathrow.

:03:13.:03:14.

But after all the delay there's been, it will be the solutions

:03:15.:03:17.

on air and noise which will be most closely scrutinised.

:03:18.:03:23.

Let's pick up on this with Tim, who's in Richmond tonight.

:03:24.:03:27.

No-one thought it was going to be easy, but do you think people

:03:28.:03:31.

realised it would be at least another year before

:03:32.:03:33.

I'm not sure. See how quickly we've almost assumed a decision h`s been

:03:34.:03:43.

made or is going to be made in favour of Heathrow. Local

:03:44.:03:46.

authorities like Hillingdon, we saw in the film there, and Richlond

:03:47.:03:50.

here, are keen to point out, there's a long way to go. It's the beginning

:03:51.:03:53.

of a process, or will be thd beginning of a process. All the

:03:54.:03:57.

Government will be doing next week through a Cabinet subcommittee is

:03:58.:04:02.

expressing a statement of preference then a more formal process kicks in.

:04:03.:04:06.

They have to produce a national policy statement, which will explain

:04:07.:04:10.

how they deal with the unanswered questions about air quality,

:04:11.:04:14.

traffic, how you build and so on. That's the point here. That's why

:04:15.:04:18.

these authorities like Hillhngdon are saying, you know, watch what you

:04:19.:04:22.

do here. We are ready to take legal action at any turn. What do you make

:04:23.:04:28.

of the unusual arrangements to allow ministers to oppose their

:04:29.:04:33.

Government's policy? It is tnusual. It gives you an idea of what a

:04:34.:04:38.

difficult decision this one is. In effect, this is giving ministers a

:04:39.:04:42.

limited freedom to object, to criticise. Ministers, like Boris

:04:43.:04:47.

Johnson, the MP for Uxbridgd, former London Mayor, and Justine Greening,

:04:48.:04:50.

the Education Secretary, an MP for put any, the right to criticise a

:04:51.:04:56.

decision apparently, but not how the decision was reached nor to actively

:04:57.:05:00.

campaign. There are some lilitations there. Attention then turns to

:05:01.:05:06.

people like Zac Goldsmith, the MP here in Richmond Park. Evenhng

:05:07.:05:10.

Standard reporting today th`t a meeting last night he said he could

:05:11.:05:13.

stand down and then stand as an independent in a by-election here.

:05:14.:05:18.

What's more, this article stggested that Conservatives locally will

:05:19.:05:21.

support him. That could raise all kinds of issues. There are `ll kinds

:05:22.:05:27.

of political implications wd are about to see play out. Tim, thank

:05:28.:05:29.

you. Now to news we're

:05:30.:05:32.

getting of a disturbance Let's cross to our reporter

:05:33.:05:34.

Marc Ashdown in the newsrool. There was an incident involving a

:05:35.:05:47.

group of prisoners at about 3. 0pm. The Prison Officers' Associ`tion

:05:48.:05:52.

told us it resulted in one prisoner being killed, two others injured and

:05:53.:05:56.

taken to hospital with what they say were stab wounds. At the tile, they

:05:57.:05:59.

said no prison officers werd involved. But literally just in the

:06:00.:06:03.

past few minutes, we've had a statement from the Met police saying

:06:04.:06:05.

they've launched a murder investigation. A man in his 20s was

:06:06.:06:10.

pronounced dead at the scend. A postmortem will follow. He's not

:06:11.:06:14.

been formally identified yet. They are in the process of inforling his

:06:15.:06:22.

next of kin. They said two len, aged 21 and 30, were taken to hospital

:06:23.:06:26.

with stab wounds. They're in a critical condition. They confirmed a

:06:27.:06:30.

34-year-old prisoner was arrested at the scene and is in custody at a

:06:31.:06:35.

police station tonight. The Ministry of Justice are aware of all this but

:06:36.:06:38.

can't comment further. It c`used, what I'm told, was a minor

:06:39.:06:42.

disturbance. About 120 prisoners were removed from the area while it

:06:43.:06:46.

was dealt with. I'm told thhngs are back to normal. Pen tonvilld has had

:06:47.:06:53.

a difficult recent history. Two inspections question its vi`bility

:06:54.:06:56.

going forward unless it has substantial investment in btildings

:06:57.:06:59.

and staffing. An incident lhke this, where a prisoner has been khlled,

:07:00.:07:01.

will raise more difficult qtestions. It's a photograph that capttred

Elizabeth Rizzini for It has turned colderment a chilly

:09:42.:09:52.

wind around today, a lovely sunny afternoon for the most part. It led

:09:53.:09:56.

to a really pretty sun set out there. Just the right amount of

:09:57.:10:03.

cloud. What's happening over the next few days is that we'll see a

:10:04.:10:08.

bit of an east-west split sdt up. There'll be a chilly wind for

:10:09.:10:11.

everyone. But particularly so for Eastern areas. Here we may see one

:10:12.:10:16.

or two showers at times too. Drier the further west you are. Plenty of

:10:17.:10:20.

sunshine here. But we will `lso get cooler nights. It will feel chillier

:10:21.:10:24.

tonight than last night. Cldar skies for the most part, staying dry. We

:10:25.:10:28.

have got a north-westerly whnd. It helps to keep mist and fog patches

:10:29.:10:32.

at bay. Temperatures in towns, down to eight or nine degrees. In rural

:10:33.:10:37.

spots we could be looking at fives and sixes. Locally a cool start to

:10:38.:10:41.

the day tomorrow. Not a bad looking day. There'll be plenty of sunshine

:10:42.:10:46.

around. Small chance of one or two showers in north Eastern parts. Wind

:10:47.:10:51.

chill around as well. Temperatures higher than today, 15 degreds

:10:52.:10:55.

Celsius. Looking ahead, we still see showers out towards the east, then

:10:56.:10:57.

further west, it will be mostly dry. Good evening. As you've just seen

:10:58.:11:09.

from your local outlook, not a huge amount changes over the next few

:11:10.:11:13.

days. The weather patterns will be blocked again. What is driving that?

here, metres of it in the next few days. It's dragging a lot of warm
