Travellers at London Stansted Airport have been hit by delays after the runway was closed for emergency repairs. Passengers were told by crew members there was a hole on the landing strip. The airport said its runway was closed between 17:30 and 18:10 BST on Sunday. A total of 11 incoming flights were diverted to other hubs including Luton and East Midlands. The runway has since reopened and "flight operations are back to normal", the airport says.
