Direct flights between Southampton and Leeds are to continue following an announcement by regional airline Eastern Airways.

The company intends to run three daily weekday services and a Sunday service from January.

Earlier this year Flybe said it would be withdrawing from the Southampton-Leeds-Bradford route.

Eastern Airways said the flights would provide access from the north to cruise ship departures from Southampton.
