Doncaster-Sheffield Airport could be a step closer to being reopened after plans to progress with an outline business case for the move were agreed.

The airport closed in November 2022, with its owners citing high costs.

On Tuesday, South Yorkshire Combined Authority's board unanimously gave the go-ahead to initial proposals which would see £138m of public money made available to fund the reopening.

Another vote is expected in the summer to agree the release of the funding.

The combined authority is now expected to move towards considering a full business case for the airport's reopening.
