A team of runners took-off on a very early morning run along Stansted Airport’s runway today to raise funds for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, the airport’s charity partner.

At 3am nearly 100 airport staff and Air Ambulance supporters sprinted, jogged and walked the 6km course for the fun run along the airport’s 3048 metre long runway.
