Airport expansion opponents have claimed criteria used to consider sites for new runways has been "infected by apparent bias".

The Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) group has lodged papers for a new High Court action, calling for a delay in the publication of shortlisted sites.

SSE said the criteria used to consider the sites should be re-examined.

The Department for Transport (DfT) said there was "no evidence whatsoever of bias".

SSE claimed that former Airports Commissioner Geoff Muirhead had a conflict of interest.
