    Campaigners have lost their High Court battle to block the expansion of Stansted Airport.
    The Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) group was opposing proposals for an additional 10 million passengers a year to use the single, existing runway at the Essex airport.
    The SSE accused the Government of unlawfully “steamrollering these plans every step of the way”.
    But today, High Court judge Sir Thayne Forbes dismissed the legal challenge and said criticisms of the way the matter had been handled were “unjustified and without substance”
