Thousands of passengers are stranded at Manchester Airport after dozens of flights were cancelled and delayed due to fuel supply problems.

There have been at least 69 cancellations – 37 arrivals and 32 departures – since the issue started on Sunday afternoon, with a number of other flights hit by delays.

With departures and arrivals cancelled or delayed into the early hours, the disruption seems set to continue into Monday.

An airport spokesman told Sky News: “Due to a power issue this afternoon there is currently an issue with the fuel supply at the airport.

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