Flights coming to and from the north and north-east have been affected by a power cut at Manchester Airport.

An outage at the facility earlier today has meant that aircraft could not be re-fuelled.

Two Flybe services which were due to arrive in Aberdeen at 6pm and 8.15pm were cancelled.

A further two trips that were due to leave the airport at 6.25pm and 8.40pm were also cancelled.

Meanwhile a flight leaving Inverness Airport for Manchester this afternoon was also delayed.

A Manchester Airport spokesman said: “Due to a power issue this afternoon there is currently an issue with the fuel supply at the airport.

“Engineers are… on site to fix the issue and we are working with airlines to try and minimise the impact.”
