The latest offer to buy Manston Airport has been rejected.
American aviation investor Riveroak had made an improved offer yesterday.
The airport's owner is said to have rejected it on the grounds that the bid was submitted too late and, she claims, many of the staff have already found new jobs.
Ann Gloag rejected the bid just minutes after the Prime Minister told the commons that the government would do everything they can to help keep Manston open.
