Delayed flights at Stansted early this morning (April 10) left passengers waiting up to two hours for baggage.

Fog caused thirty flights to arrive between midnight and 3am-outside the airport's normal operating hours.

Passengers described the handling delays and queues at passport control as an "absolute shambles".

An airport spokesperson apologised for the delays and inconvenience and said:

"Airlines and ground handling partners called in additional staff to help manage the situation and mitigate delays.

"Our own staff helped provide passengers with information and handed out water during the period."
