A power failure at Stansted airport led to huge queues of departing Christmas holidaymakers. Police reportedly intervened to help control the crowds.
Police are appealing for help to find a missing schoolboy from Tottenham. 12 year-old Dennis Pearce has not been seen since 2.30 this afternoon. Anyone with information about him is asked to call police on 101.
The power failure affected a satellite building and the track transit which takes passengers to the satellite for boarding.
Stansted said neither the main terminal nor the runway were affected and passengers were being taken by bus to their flights.
The power, which failed at around 3pm, was restored around two hours later. Stansted is still warning passengers to expect delays.

Several "high value" items have been stolen from renowned auction house Christie's.
Jewellery, antiques and valuable works of art, including rare pieces by the famed house of Faberge, were taken from the auctioneer's headquarters in King Street, central London, the Mail on Sunday has reported.
The burglary, which was reportedly captured on CCTV, is said to have occurred two weeks ago but no arrests have been made.
Scotland Yard did not name Christie's but said: "We can confirm that officers from Westminster are currently investigating a burglary at business premises which is believed to have occurred between 6pm on Sunday, December 7 and 8am on Monday, December 8.
"A number of high value items were taken. Inquiries continue. No arrests have been made."
