The City of Derry Airport (LDY) is being shut by the CAA UK until further notice because of safety concerns. The CAA decided to provisionally suspend its licence following an inspection this week. Problems found include lack of an effective bird control plan, unsuitable temporary repairs to the area where planes park and poor runway drainage. (BBC)
