Essex MPs have welcomed a long awaited report into airport capacity, saying they are pleased it doesn't recommend an extra runway at Stansted.

The airport commission says Heathrow is the best option for a new runway.

But the report does indicate that passenger numbers at Stansted will increase over the next 15 years.

"I think Manchester Airports group are far more responsive to the public than their predecessors as the owners of Stansted, and there is on the whole a pretty cordial relationship.

I think it would only start to become strained some years down the line if a second runway was talked about."

– Sir Alan Haselhurst MP, Saffon Walden

Meanwhile, striker Mark Cullen has left the club.

The 23-year-old has joined League One side Blackpool for £180,000.

"Mark was part of our squad that got us promoted back to the Football League – that is something we’ll never forget – and last season he was our leading goalscorer.

However, Mark made it obvious that he wanted to move back up north to be closer to his home."
