Figures released earlier this week by the Civil Aviation Authority stated that the airport charged passengers 50p per plastic bag to carry liquids through security checks.

But in a short statement, the airport has clarified its position and said in a short statement: "Doncaster Sheffield Airport do not charge passengers for clear plastic bags.”

On its website, the CAA listed a number of airports where passengers are charged for the bags, which must be used to carry products such as beauty products, medicines and baby milk though barrier controls.
