Flights are resuming at Britain’s second busiest airport after they were suspended for two hours this evening.

Gatwick airport is warning all passengers to check the status of their flights before travelling to the airport.

Flights were suspended just after 5pm due to an "air traffic control system issue" in the control tower.

Earlier the airport said it was working with its air traffic control provider ANS to rectify the issue as soon as possible.

A divert plan was immediately put n place with inbound flights sent to nearby airports.

Gatwick, in West Sussex, is Britain's second busiest airport, behind Heathrow.
Many passengers voiced their frustration with the delays on social media as lanes were forced to wait on the tarmac.

The airport apologised to passengers for the inconvenience.
