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.

The St Mawes to Falmouth passenger ferry service has been suspended for the rest of today due to severe weather conditions.

Delays are also possible to flights to and from Newquay Airport due to adverse weather.

Meanwhile, snow ploughs and blowers are continuing to clear the A39 in Somerset, which has been one of the worst hit roads in the region.

Isles of Scilly flights remain diverted from Land's End

Skybus will continue to operate flights to the Isles of Scilly via Newquay Airport up to and including Monday 21st January 2013, when the situation will be reviewed.

Further rain has been predicted to fall at Land’s End Airport in the coming days. With the ground already saturated it is still too wet to operate scheduled services from the airfield.

We need a longer period of reasonable weather to allow the airfield to dry out and that is unlikely in the coming days so we will continue to operate via Newquay until at least Monday of next week.
