How can I find figures for cargo carried to/from UK Airports?

Cargo is a sum of freight and mail carried. Freight table numbers are 13, 14, 15 and for mail the table numbers are 16, 17, 18.

Freight includes the weight of property carried on an aircraft including the weight of excess baggage and diplomatic bags, but excluding mail and passengers’ and crews’ permitted baggage. Freight in transit through the airport on the same aircraft is excluded.

Mail is the weight of Post Office mail carried.
