Gatwick: Some flights diverted to Stansted

A Gatwick spokeswoman has said the passengers involved in the emergency landing were being looked after in a specially set-up reception area at the airport.

Some incoming flights have been diverted, with some now landing at Stansted Airport in Essex instead.

The spokeswoman did not know how long it would take for the plane to be moved from the runway and normal take-offs and landings to resume.

Injuries after Gatwick landing

All flights in and out of Gatwick were suspended earlier after a plane made an emergency landing following a technical fault. Runways have since reopened but passengers should expect 'knock-on disruptions'. 15 people have been treated in hospital.
