Stansted airport on new Monopoly
Stansted airport is featured on the new Monopoly board edition
Essex residents will notice a familiar landmark when playing the new Monopoly edition this year.

Stansted airport now features on the popular game board, along with four other airports to replace the old railway station squares.

The new version was unveiled at the annual Toy Fair exhibition in London.

Ben Green, chairman of the Toy Retailers Association, said the 2005 edition was designed to reflect modern day life in Britain.

"A lot of the old names and favourites have now gone, and there's new squares like Covent Garden, the London Eye, and Wembley Stadium," he said.

"The boots are gone and the rollerblades are in... It's really hip and trendy and reflects what Monopoly would look like if invented today," Mr Green added.
