Gatwick's operations are "returning to normal" after it was forced to close the airport’s main runway on Sunday due to problems with the runway’s surface.
The airport had to temporarily close the runway at 3.48pm on Sunday after reports of a “hole” opening up on the surface.
Some flights had to be diverted to Stansted and Bournemouth while the airport assessed the damage. Easyjet confirmed that some inbound flights had been diverted on Sunday while it also had to cancel some departing services.
While the main runway was out of action, Gatwick was able to switch operations to its smaller northern runway to allow some flights to continue. The main runway later reopened on Sunday evening.
"Gatwick airport is returning to normal after the temporary closure of the runway yesterday afternoon," said the Sussex airport in a statement.
"Some minor knock-on delays are occurring this morning (June 13) while some of yesterday's flights are accommodated in today's schedule. Passengers are advised to check the status of their flight with the airline."
