Gatwick airport's new routes to South America will be vital to the UK's economy after it leaves the European Union.

Thast's according to boss Stewart Wingate.

"As the UK enters an important new chapter on the global stage, new links created to key markets such as South America will play a crucial role in the country's economy and national identity," he said.

More than 101,000 travelled on new flights to Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires in the last six months, contributing to a 2.3% uplift in passengers flying long haul.

However, reductions elsewhere meant that only 0.2% more passengers used Gatwick in the six months.

Revenue grew 5.6% over the year to £541.3m, pushing up profit after tax to £137m.

Almost 27 million passengers went through the airport's gates over the six months.

Fire crews are helping the ambulance service in Kent by transporting increasing number of obese patients, according to figures obtained by BBC Radio Kent.

In the past three years, Kent Fire and Rescue said it had assisted with more than 560 bariatric patients.

In 2018, firefighters helped to move 263 people, up from 130 the year before.

By 4 October this year, 175 bariatric patients had been assisted, according to official figures.

A South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson said the figures needed to be seen in the context of about 800,000 calls received each year.

"Across our region we treat a variety of patients, many of whom are managing long term and complex health needs.

"We have a duty to ensure we have the resources required to respond to the needs of all our patients including those who are overweight."
