According to the Sussex airport’s Twitter feed, the power outage took place more than an hour ago, affecting thousands of holidaymakers and travellers.

Gatwick said engineers worked hard to restore power, which had been lost in several areas of the South Terminal.

The power outage affected some check-ins and airlines.

The airport is advising passengers to check with their individual airline they are travelling with for any potential delays to their journey.
