AN ACTOR who made his name filming a comedy series in the borough about 'green issues' is fighting to save Sipson from the third runway.
Richard Briers starred in 1970s sitcom The Good Life, partly shot in a house in Kewferry Road, Northwood.
He is lending his support to the campaign by cultivating a small piece of land he bought in a plot Greenpeace acquired in the village earlier this year.
He is planting carrots on the plot of land, off Harmondsworth Lane, and cheekily plans to send the vegetables to every member of Gordon Brown's cabinet.
Mr Briers said: "I'm hoping they'll become so attached to them that they'll drop their plans for Heathrow expansion.
"This new runway is just such a daft idea. It's obvious to everyone who digs a garden that the climate is already changing, and things are set to get even worse, so why make Heathrow the single biggest emitter of CO2 in the country?"
