People parking at Newquay Airport will now have to pay a pound to stay there for just five minutes.

The new tariff was introduced on Monday. Other local airports including Exeter and Bristol also charge a pound for drop off parking.

The local MP Stephen Gilbert has called the move bonkers and says he's concerned that roads outside the airport will become dangerous because of people jumping out to avoid the charge.

Classic planes on show at Newquay Airport

Icons from Britain's aviation history go on display in Newquay today. Classic planes from the 1950s and 60s - some of them saved from the scrapyard - are starting a new life at a museum at the airport.

As well as seeing the planes on the ground, visitors will also get the chance to go up in some of them.
