Hundreds of passengers had their flights delayed after a power cut at East Midlands airport.

Airport staff said it was experiencing disruption due to an electrical power supply failure today, which affected operations for several hours until around 1.20pm.

It meant 11 flights had to be diverted from the Derby site to other airports, while one flight was cancelled altogether.

An airport spokesman said: "We are not sure about the cause of the problem, although it was a power cut.

"Some passengers were bussed elsewhere to other airports. Operations are fully back up and running now, and we expect no further problems."
