Stansted Airport has launched a campaign for better rail links which it says could help attract an extra 1.4 million passengers a year.

The airport wants the rail journey time to and from London to be reduced to 30 minutes.

It is also calling for the Crossrail link under construction in the South-East to be extended to Stansted.

It says it wants Stansted to be the best connected air-rail hub in the UK.
