Belfast International airport closes

Blurring image of passengers at the airport

A cargo aeroplane stuck on the runway at Belfast International airport has disrupted flights.

The runway was reopened at 9.00 BST and is operating at a shorter length than usual due to the cargo aeroplane still being stuck.

Delays are expected as the airport looks to deal with the knock-on effect.

The cargo aeroplane was forced to stop at the junction of both runways at the airport due to a number of burst tires.

It has been reported that airlines are currently working to get passengers onto flights and have advised them to travel to the airport as normal, check-in and see if their flights are still being operated.

easyJet have been forced to cancel a wave of arrivals.
