"The safety and security of our airport and passengers is our number one priority, but we'd like to apologise to passengers impacted today."

This is a quote from the BBC news site about the crumbling of the runway at Gatwick.

I suppose that impacting passengers would cause some damage to the runway.

In London. Keen but lazy.

    Raining cats and dogs tends to damage the tarmac a bit too.  I think it's the teeth that do it. image

    I hope you get your flights OK Busy.

    Railways on strike again here this week which will affect my daughter's last week of exams and her parents' activities as we have to be taxis.   She can't take a car as there'll be nowhere to park.

    I learned to drive with the IMPACT driving school in west London.  Had to love the name.
