Blackpool Airport closure 'sad news'

Talks are under way to try to secure a future for Blackpool Airport after its owners Balfour Beatty's announcement that it will close on 15 October.

The company said the airport has been making a loss for a number of years and had to close.

One airline which uses Blackpool, Jet2, will be transferring its flights to Manchester from Friday.
