Flights have been disrupted again at Stansted Airport after fog caused low visibility and landing equipment was damaged.
Earlier this morning an arriving Gulfstream G550 was involved in an incident which caused the damage.
Due to this, and low visibility, there have been restrictions on arriving flights but they are now landing as normal.
A spokesman for the airport said: “The fog has now lifted and arriving flights are now being accepted. Departing flights are unaffected at this time but there could be delays and cancellations later in the day as a result of the earlier disruption to inbound aircraft.
“NATS, who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the ILS equipment, have engineers on site and are currently working to the resolve the issue and return the airfield to normal operations as quickly as possible.
“As a result flights will be subject to delay and cancellations so passengers are advised to check their flight status on their airline website. We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.”
