Travellers face more cancellations at Heathrow on the third day of disruption since the IT glitch.

Display boards showed some flights cancelled, including planes to Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

The other cancellations were domestic flights to Glasgow, Aberdeen, Manchester, Leeds Bradford and Dublin.

While a number of weary-looking passengers filled the benches by departures, for the majority check-in seemed to be going smoothly.

All passengers whose flights have been cancelled should not travel to the airport unless they have already rebooked onto another flight. Passengers looking to re-book flights should go to BA.com.

We have mobilised additional Heathrow colleagues to assist passengers at the terminals and give out free water and snacks. We are working hard with British Airways to reunite passengers with their bags as soon as possible.

We are very sorry to any passengers whose journeys have been affected.
