Stansted Airport is predicting its busiest Easter weekend on record.

More than 300,000 are expected through the gates over the next four days - with 41,000 of those coming today.

The airport on the Cambridgeshire/Essex border tells Heart they're fully staffed to cope with the volume.

They're also trying to minimise stress at security, by playing uplifting music as holiday-makers stand in long queues.

Top destinations from Stansted Airport this year include Dublin, Barcelona and Rome.
