Flights were disrupted at Stansted Airport for the second day running in order for repairs to the runway to be carried out.

Departures and arrivals were suspended for around an hour on Wednesday morning, and some flights were diverted to Luton Airport.

Another problem emerged on Thursday night and the airport confirmed that flights were briefly held to allow for "minor runway works" to take place.

However, the runway reopened again around ten minutes later and a spokesperson apologised for any inconvenience.
