How North Lincolnshire could benefit from Heathrow expansion

The result of the House of Commons vote was cheered by bosses at British Steel in Scunthorpe, which is on a longlist of potential logistics hubs to help with the construction process.

Scunthorpe MP Nic Dakin, who voted in favour of the expansion, urged more to be done to address environmental concerns but said: "The commitment to use UK steel should benefit not just the UK, but our own area too.

"Had we voted against, it would still probably have gone ahead, but the contract would have gone abroad and wouldn't have benefited our economy."
