Gatwick latest: Some delays after emergency landing

This just in from Gatwick airport

Following the emergency landing of a Virgin flight bound for Orlando earlier today, our standby runway is now open and flights are departing and arriving.

However, we are operating a reduced service and passengers can expect some knock on disruptions and delays.

We aim to return to normal operations as soon as possible.

Passengers are advised to check with their airline for specific flight information.
