As Gatwick slowly returns to normal after Thursday's drone disruption, passengers are still having to make alternative travel plans, which could mean missing part of their holiday.

'The Bridge' is not just any bridge

The Oresund bridge connects Denmark and Sweden
The Oresund bridge between the Copenhagen capital Denmark and the Swedish city of Malmö is one of the best-known bridges in the world.

It achieved global fame by appearing as the moody backdrop to Scandinavian TV crime drama 'The Bridge,' which has been shown in more than 100 countries.

The bridge recently turned 18 and has become a symbol for European cross-border cooperation. Maddy Savage reports on what sort of success it's had in economic terms.

Newquay Airport has announced a new link to Scandinavia.

Next summer there'll be twice-weekly flights to Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.

It's the first time Cornwall's premier gateway has been connected directly with Scandinavia - with flights starting on 28 June, and continuing every Monday and Friday during the peak season.

Managing Director of the airport, Al Titterington, described it as "brilliant news not just for the airport, but for the local region of Cornwall and beyond".
