Description
Interview with Steve Hall of the local residents association following an accident at Gatwick Airport when a British Airways Boeing 737 had to veer into muddy ground to avoid a collision. He believes the near-miss proves it’s unsafe to use the emergency runway as an alternative while the major one undergoes nighttime repair work and wants the airport to close down for five hours each night. Male interviewer not identified.
