Land's End Airport in Cornwall is remaining closed because of a waterlogged runway, managers say.

Skybus, which provides flights from the airport to the Isles of Scilly as well as scenic flights, closed the grass runway on Friday following heavy rain.

Managers said it would remain closed on Monday, but added its condition would be reviewed later in the day.

The company said all passengers were being informed and being transported to Newquay Airport for flights.
