Passengers heading on holiday from Gatwick Airport can now check in their own luggage in the world's largest self service bag drop. The billion pound technology is part of an ongoing transformation to the departure zone in the North Terminal. It follows successful trials of a self-service bag drop in the South Terminal.
The Royal Navy achieved a historic milestone when HMS Lancaster’s Wildcat helicopter became the first rotary wing aircraft to land at the island of St Helena’s new airport.
Sitting 1,200 miles off the coast of African and 1,800 miles from South America, St Helena is one of the most remote islands in the world – but all of that is scheduled to change early next year when the airport officially opens.
Landing at St Helena airport was a fantastic opportunity to bring a brand new helicopter to a brand new airport, particularly during such an historic period for the island. The airport will usher in a new era for the local community and I was delighted to be a part of that.
It's claimed to be the most environmentally friendly plane ever - and has flown into Heathrow carrying passengers for the time.
Heathrow and Gatwick say planes like the A350 will lead to less noise for thousands under the flight paths in the Thames Valley and Sussex.
So what's so special about the new plane and what do our noise campaigners think? Our Transport Correspondent Milke Pearse was on its first trip.
The first of a new generation of quieter, low fuel burn and less CO2 planes has to our skies. The A350 is the Airbus rival to the Dreamliner. It is made out of components made in the Meridian region. The pilot testing and developing project is from Sussex. We will have more later today.
Plans to power a Sussex village entirely by solar energy have been approved.
Balcombe was famously the focus of anti-fracking protests. Planning permission has been granted for 18,500 panels generating enough electricity, not just for its own residents, but also for a neighbouring village.
A decision is due to be made later on a solar farm at a Sussex village - once the focus of a battle over fracking. Balcombe wants to create a community-owned solar farm which would match the demands of homes there.
We all know it's against the law but thousands of drivers in the south-east are still using their mobile phones behind the wheel, making calls, texting, and even taking pictures.
In Sussex last year, more than 1,800 drivers were caught using a phone while driving. And in Kent, more than 1,000 drivers were given penalties in 2014.
Now a trial has started in Sussex of an "intelligent lamppost" that can detect when a phone is being used in a car - and it flashes a warning - telling you to stop doing it.
But will it work? David Johns investigates. He speaks to Carl Knapp of the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership; Peter Rodger of the Institute of Advanced Motorists; and sign manufacturer Tim Barnett.
Groundbreaking new technology is set to be used in Sussex to warn drivers who are illegally using their mobile phones.Read the full story ›
