Airport fuel row cancels Fly-In
A shortage of aviation fuel in Alderney has forced the cancellation of the island's annual Fly-In.

The event attracts aircraft from all over the Bailiwick and UK and is a big money-spinner for the island.

Organisers have pulled the plug on the event because of an ongoing row over aviation fuel which has left the airport without a reliable supply.

The Alderney Flying Club event was due to have been extra special this year as it was celebrating its 21st birthday.

A health and safety ruling means supplier CYMA Petroleum is no longer permitted to use its long-term storage facility near the harbour.

Planes have had to fill up in Guernsey.

Alderney's States said it was working to resolve the issue.
