    Leeds Bradford Airport is charging �2 to drop off passengers,
    airport bosses broke planning rules when they installed road signs to publicise new controversial drop-off charges.

    Management at Leeds Bradford International Airport failed to seek planning permission before erecting signs on White House Lane telling passengers about the £2 toll which has caused angry complaints.
    The notices breach guidelines on style, content and letter size. They may also have been put up in the wrong places.
    Airport officials declined to say why they failed to consult highways officials before putting up the signs. They have been ordered to replace them.
    A council spokesman said: “The new signs on White House Lane alerting passengers to the new pick-up and drop-off arrangements at the airport do not meet national road sign guidelines.

    What absolute nonsense to charge people 2 quid to drop off passengers. I cannot believe this. Take down the signs and be done with it.

    Agree. Makes me want to opt for train, ship or bus travel.
