Full report: Runway still closed following flooding at Land's End Airport

The company running Land's End Airport is looking for an urgent solution to flooding which has closed the runway providing links to the Isles of Scilly. The terminal has been closed for three days and earlier this month it was shut for an entire week.

Heavy rain has made the grass airstrip unuseable, with services diverted to Newquay. Our Cornwall correspondent Steve Hardy reports.

Skybus flights transferred to Newquay

Skybus has transferred all flights from Land's End to Newquay Cornwall Airport until Thursday 6 December because more heavy rain is forecast this weekend.

This will allow time for the grass runway to dry out in the better weather predicted for the middle of next week.

All Skybus services to and from St Mary’s Airport on the Isles of Scilly will operate via Newquay today and on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Skybus does not operate on Sundays.
