Boris Johnson has been called a liar and a conspiracy theorist by the head of Britain’s airport commission, as the row over airport expansion continues.

Sir Howard Davies rejected the London Mayor’s proposal for a new airport in the Thames Estuary yesterday, stating that the scheme would cost too much and damage the environment. Sir Howard told The Times the Mayor was “just wrong”. “He’s said all kinds of things about what I said to him yesterday, most of them are actually untrue,” he said.
