Idyllic Harmondsworth today

There was absolute mayhem in Middlesex this morning, when a passenger flight attempted to land at Heathrow Airport's third runway, approximately two years before it has been built.

The plane, a British Airways 747 on a flight from Tokyo, taxied around the village of Harmondsworth for ten minutes before descending sharply and landing in its High Street, demolishing the post office, a general store, a hairdressers, a book shop, two charity shops, a newsagents and around 100 houses.

Government ministers had only given the go-ahead for the third runway to be built this morning, but the pilot of flight BA365 didn't waste any time in waiting for it to be finished as he consigned the pretty hamlet to the history books.

A British Airways spokesman told us:

"It's very important for Britain's economy that the airport is extended, and, as far as we're concerned, the sooner the better!"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
