Six decades of flying high at Bristol Airport

Bristol Airport is celebrating 60 years since passenger flights began.

From a small civilian airport at Lulsgate Bottom to a huge international airport servicing dozens of destinations, it has had a chequered history.

In 1957 it saw 90 passengers a day, but now it's more like 21,000.

It hopes to double its size over the next few years to handle as many as 15 million passengers.

BBC Points West presenter David Garmston has taken a look back at the history of the airport.
