A GROUP of Christmas themed protestors who fear hundreds of planes could soon fly over Ascot picketed the Transport Secretary's house.

On Tuesday a second consultation into flight paths and noise pollution from Heathrow Airport finished.

In celebration, the Ascot based Residents Against Aircraft Noise travelled to Chris Grayling's house in Ashstead to sing anti-third runway ballads, eat mince pies and generally be merry.

Although flight paths from the third runway have not been confirmed, indicative patterns suggest it could send planes over Ascot, Sunningdale and Sunninghill.

"We just wanted to let the Minister know the protest aren't going to go away," said Murray Barter, an Ascot resident and member of the group.

"There are two indicative flight paths that could go over Ascot. If they are chosen there are going to be several hundred aircraft flying overhead everyday.

"It is going to massively increase. People's lives could shift in a paradigm way."

It is thought the third runway at Heathrow will be completed by late 2025.

In the end Mr Grayling did not return to his home in time to meet the protesters, who left leaflets and banners on his gate.
