Airport future to be discussed by councillors in Plymouth

The future of Plymouth City Airport will be discussed by the city council today.

More than 37,000 people have signed a petition calling for the airport to be run by the state. It closed last December, despite opposition. Developers want to build houses, shops and flats on the 113 acre site.
