    Thousands of passengers are stranded at Manchester Airport after at least 87 cancellations since Sunday afternoon, with a number of other flights hit by delays.

    While the airport remains open, passengers are being referred to their specific airline for further updates and information about their flights.

    A Manchester Airport spokesperson said the issue had been resolved at 03:00 BST and that "most scheduled flights" would be operated as planned on Monday.

    "However, we expect that there will be a small number of delays and cancellations as a result of the issues experienced," the spokesperson told BBC News.
