Bournemouth Airport is set to be sold to the coach company National Express, reports the Evening Echo, Bournemouth.

The airport, jointly owned by Bournemouth BC and Dorset CC is one of the last municipal airfields in Britain.

A deal has been agreed between National Express and the airport managers but the £7m price tag has been criticised by councillors as derisory, reports the paper.

In the past the airport has been valued at over £25m but the price has been depressed by much-needed investment at the 1,000 acre site. The deal could be completed as early as April.
