    More of a tip than a query for those using LSTN.
    I was looking for a special place to post this but couldn't find

    I was at Stansted yesterday and found that the road leading to the Forecourt area outside the main terminal is now permanently closed for free dropping of passengers.
    Everybody is "encouraged" to go to the "Express drop off point" in the main car parking area to drop off passengers.
    Beware that this costs £2 for 10 minutes and £3 for 15.
    To collect you can park normally for £2.80 for 20 mins and £5.40 up to 50 minutes.
    A awarden informed me that many more airports in the UK are talking about adopting this as I know Luton are already
