No change to the flightpaths

Richard Smart (letters July 19)can rest easy in Roffey, safe in the knowledge that there has not been a change to the flight paths taken by aircraft using Gatwick.

All that has happened recently is that some aircraft have been re-routed on an ad hoc basis to avoid adverse weather which they would have encountered if they had taken their normal route.

On another matter, if ‘so jealous of people going on exotic holidays... while I’m stuck in Horsham’ qualifies as a ‘tweet of the week’, it doesn’t say much for the quality or content of those tweets which didn’t make it into this frankly banal and pointless section of the paper. You ask people to say what they think of local issues - how does this qualify?
