Heathrow Airport can appeal to UK top court over block to expansion

LONDON, May 7 (Reuters) - Heathrow Airport can appeal to Britain's Supreme Court against a block on to its plans for expansion and construction of a third runway, judges said on Thursday.

Heathrow was granted the permission to appeal against a February ruling which said that the UK government's airport expansion policy was unlawful as it failed to take into account its climate change commitments. (Reporting by Alistair Smout and Sarah Young)
