Colin Matthews, the chief executive of British Airports Authority, which runs Heathrow Airport, has decided to forego his annual bonus after this week's debacle at the airport.

Britain's largest airport and one of the world's largest international travel hubs was closed on Sunday and working at less than half capacity on Monday and Tuesday.

Hundreds of flights were cancelled and thousands of passengers left stranded.

The size of the bonus he'll be missing out on was not disclosed.

He received around one million pounds in salary and bonus in 2009.

Speaking to telegraph.co.uk, he said: "I have decided not to take a bonus for 2010."
