Passenger numbers at Gatwick Airport reached record levels last month.

Gatwick handled just under 4.1 million passengers in July - the highest monthly figure at the West Sussex airport.

The record was achieved despite a 5.4% dip in UK traffic, while European charter numbers were also down, by 5.2%.

However, European scheduled traffic rose 10.5% last month and North Atlantic numbers increased 6.6%, with other long-haul traffic rising 8.9%.

The latest figures took the total number of passengers at Gatwick for the 12 months ending July 2014 to 36.92 million - a 6.1% rise on the total for the 12 months ending July 2013.

Did the statistics include such information as how many of them actually arrived with their luggage?
