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.
