If you're dropping off your relatives or friends at Bournemouth Airport today - beware.

That's because new fines are coming into force aiming to stop people collecting and dropping off passengers outside the airport.

Dorset County Council say the new fine has been prompted by safety fears. There have also been complaints about people trying to avoid the parking charges.

Councillor Margaret Phipps said: "People are stopping in the quarry entrance to unload people, getting their luggage out the boot, and with children running around it's really dangerous."
