British parliament votes to expand London's Heathrow Airport

LONDON - British lawmakers voted in favor of building a new runway at London's Heathrow Airport on Monday, paving the way for the airport's expansion after decades of delays and policy U-turns.
Lawmakers voted 415 to 119 to support the expansion, a decision that has long divided parliament regardless of party lines, with some opposed to threat of extra noise and air pollution in London, particularly its western regions.
