Gloag airport jobs under threat

UP to 150 jobs have been placed under threat following the announcement that a regional airport owned by Ann Gloag could close.

The mostly part-time staff at Manston Airport in Kent were told that a 45-day consultation period had begun over its possible closure.

It is understood the airport has been suffering losses of £10,000 a day since Ms Gloag, who co-founded Stagecoach Group with her brother Brian Souter, bought it for just £1 last year.
