THE most worrying thing would be the noise of the jets at night. Ask anyone living in Cambourne and they will tell you that you can hear a pin drop in the street. The effect on people's sleep would be devastating.

Also, you can only know how bad the pollution can get if you have lived under similar circumstances. Having lived near a flight path in west London and a holding path in Surrey, I certainly do not want to live near another.

Cambourne is a very quiet, peaceful place, which is why I moved there two years ago. Large jets droning at low speed and low heights will destroy that peace, and the constant smell of aviation fuel that comes with the jets will be all-pervading on the flat landscape. Why can't the jets circle around the A14 between Huntingdon and Kettering, an area already used to noise and pollution?

For any authority newly to populate an area such as Cambourne and subsequently allow such a breach of trust is inequitable and unjustifiable.
