Ka-BOOOM!

The Liberal Democrats are calling for plans for a Thames Estuary airport to be scrapped following a report into a shipwreck full of explosives off Kent.

The American cargo ship SS Richard Montgomery sank off Sheerness in 1944, containing 1,400 tonnes of explosives.

Lib Dem Julian Huppert said without a “plan to deal with this mess there’s no way” the plans will get off the ground.

Engineers found it would not stop construction, a spokesman for the Mayor of London said.

Explosive ship wreck, fog, flocks of migrating birds, and lots of vociferous objectors. Of course Boris will get his folly.
