Couple sent home after travelling six hours for break in the Cotswolds

A couple who travelled for six hours to stay in the Cotswolds over the Bank Holiday weekend, were promptly told to turn around and return home.

Gloucestershire Police said an officer had greeted the couple when they reached the town of Stow-on-the-Wold on Saturday, to advise them that holiday lets were not open.

Under current government guidelines, people are able to travel as far as they wish for exercise purposes, but overnight stays are not yet permitted.

British Airways 747s to be stored at Cotswold Airport during pandemic

Up to five British Airways planes are to be stored at the Cotswold Airport during the Covid 19 - pandemic.

The B747s, which are being parked up on the runway, have caused a stir on social media after many spotted the large jets in the air or landing.

Christian Akerroyd, from the airport, said it was "relatively unusual" to have larger planes.

"They'll come in for storage in the short term," he said.

"But they'll probably be broken and recycled just because the aviation industry has been hit quite hard during Covid-19 and they are rather aging aircraft now."
