Contingency plans in place if Blackpool airport closes

There’s fresh hope Islanders will still be able to fly to and from Blackpool.

Owner Balfour Beatty, which bought the airport in 2008, put it up for sale in August and will shut it unless a buyer is found by next Tuesday.

News editor of Radio Wave in Blackpool, Andy Mitchell, admits it needs substantial investment.
