Love Luton Festival loss covered by airport

A loss of nearly £400,000 from the Love Luton Festival will be met by the income from the town's airport.

The weekend of activities was organised to coincide with the Olympic Torch Relays- but earlier this month it was revealed the festival had made a six figure loss.

Luton Borough Council revealed the money would come from a saving the airport - which it owns - has made in its budget.
