Dear Editor,

Re: Survey shows local people would rather fly from Lydd than London

I would like to question the accuracy of this article.

The referendum held on the position of the airport gave the following results.

"Lydd residents voted 741 in favour and 916 against, while in New Romney 396 were in favour and 1,288 against".

What was the number of people polled and where were they? I now live on the marsh and did not get questionnaire.

Come on Lydd airport marketing team, confess on the basis of this report and don't mislead the local people.
