BMI Regional ends Southampton-Munich flights

Airline BMI Regional has announced it is cancelling its flights from Southampton Airport to Germany, two years after the route was launched.

The airline began flying to Munich in Bavaria from Southampton in April 2016. It said flights would remain suspended until further notice for a "period of recruitment and training".

At its launch, the airport said it hoped to attract business-users and cruise ship passengers using the port of Southampton.

Southampton Airport's head of operations Neil Garwood said: "Unfortunately due to a combination of airline issues BMI regional were not able to continue with the Munich flights, which is regrettable as it was proving to be a popular destination. We hope to see BMI Regional back at Southampton Airport in the future."

Police Tasers 'should be funded by central government'

Police forces should not have to decide between having Tasers or fewer staff, the newly-elected chairman of Hampshire Police Federation, John Apter, has said in an open letter to the policing minister, MP Nick Hurd.

He wants the "critical equipment" to be funded by central government.

Police taser

I have been lobbying hard for all frontline officers in Hampshire Constabulary to have a Taser if they want it. The chief constable has listened and agreed to support this, but at a cost of £800,000. They have to pay for it by having fewer police officers or fewer staff.
