Flights have been cancelled, diverted and delayed after a lightning strike overnight knocked out Stansted's aircraft fuelling system.

Engineers were called to fix the problem after staff apparently told passengers there 40 planes unable to fill up.

Those waiting have complained of a lack of information and taken to twitter to vent their frustration.

Another passenger complained of being stuck on a plane for two hours.
