The British Government has approved the expansion of Heathrow airport - the UK's main "hub" airport.
The debate over building a new runway has been ongoing for nearly 20 years, as Heathrow airport has reached capacity but demand for travelling into the UK via London has increased, with fears that if a solution wasn't found less people would end up flying into the capital which would impact business negatively. During the campaign, multiple solutions were presented, including building an expansion to Gatwick Airport - just outside of London - instead, or former London Mayor Boris Johnson suggested building a new airport on the River Thames.
Whilst the expansion has now been approved, it's not a perfect solution. The runway won't be completed until 2026, by which time demand would have increased significantly more once again, and there are concerns about the increased air and noise pollution as a result of the additional 700 planes a day travelling into the capital.

Anna Williamson has made a name for herself in a wide array of fields.
First coming to prominence as a TV presenter CITV and ITV, alongside stage performances and musical projects. But now she’s found success as a writer of not one, but two bestselling books on mental health.
Having worked with Childline, the Princes’ trust, and Mind, her charitable credentials are well spoken for. Her first bestseller, 'Breaking Mad: The Insider's Guide to Conquering Anxiety', made the rounds as an insight into anxiety from a first person perspective, detailing her own struggles, as well as good advice for helping protect one’s own mental health.
Now she's released a follow up: 'Breaking Mum and Dad: The Insider's Guide to Parenting Anxiety'. Aimed at helping parents better understand mental health issues, it’s already been very well received by critics.
Matthew Stiles interviewed Anna Williamson to discuss her books and the world of mental health in general: the key to maintaining good mental health, misconceptions people might have, and what might be done to improve the situations of those with mental health problems going forwards.

Over the past few years, students in the UK and around the world have been complaining that their school system is not properly preparing them for the "real world". After all, how can you know algebra but not know how to do your taxes?
One specific example of this money, and more specifically, would you know what to do if you got yourself in severe debt? After all, making sure you have enough money to live is an important part of... living! Furthermore, advertisements for "payday loans" (companies which loan smaller amount of money but with large interest rates, meaning that the recipient of the loan needs to pay back significantly more money than they first received) are more popular than ever before, however many young people do not know the potential dangers of them.
Not knowing what to do to prevent debt - or what to do if you find yourself "in the red" - can cause much bigger issues if it isn't handled properly.
