Hundreds of holidaymakers have been left without their luggage after a failure at Gatwick Airport saw them arrive at their destinations without bags.

Over the weekend, a number of bags were not put on flights leaving the North Terminal, because of problems with the system.

A Gatwick Airport spokesman said: "A small number of bags were not put on departing flights over the weekend due to an issue with the baggage system. The issue has since been rectified.

"Gatwick recognises the inconvenience that this issue has caused and would like to apologise to anyone affected. Passengers should contact their airline for the latest information on their missing luggage."
