Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) welcomes the news that BAA* is to sell Stansted Airport to Manchester Airport Group. SSE Chairman Peter Sanders commented: "Our hope is that we can build a constructive relationship with Stansted's new owners based of maximising the benefits of the airport and minimising its adverse impacts".

NOTE TO EDITORS
* Most people still think of Stansted as being owned by BAA but the company was renamed Heathrow Airport Holdings on 15 October 2012.
