Gatwick Airport has confirmed this afternoon that some of its buildings contain controversial collapse-prone concrete.

It was revealed last week that more than one hundred UK school buildings were built using reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete.

RAAC is weaker than normal concrete and has a lifespan of roughly 30 years, with some school buildings containing the material now being held up with temporary metal supports.

And Gatwick Airport bosses have now revealed they were already aware that some of its buildings contain RAAC.

A spokesman for the airport said: "We have a register of locations containing RAAC on the airport campus, which are closely monitored through a regular comprehensive structural inspection regime.

“Our most recent inspection in June 2023 did not present any concerns, and we will continue to monitor on a regular basis."

RAAC has also been found at Heathrow Airport.

It comes after MP for Chichester and secretary of state for education Gillian Keegan was forced to apologise this week after being caught on camera saying she had done a “f****** good job” over the schools concrete crisis while others “sat on their arse”.
