    Heathrow Airport: Leaflets warn of runway use changes

    People living under Heathrow Airport's flight path have been sent leaflets about changes to rules that allow the use of both runways simultaneously.
    The runways are restricted to take-off or landing and switch each afternoon, except in an emergency, to give residents respite from the noise.
    As part of a trial starting next month the threshold for triggering the emergency system will be lowered.
    Airport operator BAA said it would allow it to minimise disruption.
    A BAA spokesperson said leaflets had been sent to 150,000 homes that would be affected by the trials.
