Guernsey Airport landing system 'is working'

The instrument landing system at Guernsey Airport is up and running after being delayed by several weeks, airport authorities have confirmed.

The system allows aircraft to land in low visibility by sending radio signals to guide them on approach.

The ground around the one of the devices was too bumpy for it to work properly, so had to be flattened.

Director of Guernsey Airport, Colin Le Ray, said the system will allow more flights to land in fog.

The work was part of a wider £80m project to renovate Guernsey Airport's runway.
