Plans for a second runway at Gatwick costing £5-9 billion were put forward by bosses of the West Sussex airport today.
Around 1,500 passengers were diverted away from Gatwick Airport overnight, because of a combination of fog and maintenance work.

You can add rain to the list of things that @gatwick_airport can't handle. Stuck in plane with airport flooded and no power. Fun.
Oh black out and power cut at work. Nice one Gatwick Airport, angry customers, no boards and gates! ?
Someone at @gatwick_airport shove 50p in the meter...please
Chaos at Gatwick. Water got into the electrics, power out and no flights going anywhere. Announcements via megaphone and a whiteboard!
