Easyjet chief executive: We had a brilliant summer

Easyjet chief executive Carolyn McCall has been explaining the reasons behind the airline's 51% rise in yearly pre-tax profits to £478m.

She said the firm had had a "brilliant summer" and said it was down to passengers being able to book seats and change their flights more easily.

Ms McCall told BBC business reporter Stephanie McGovern that air fares had increased because of higher fuel costs and reduced market capacity.
