Power cut affects Gatwick baggage

Baggage handling at Gatwick was in chaos on Saturday after a power cut disrupted luggage carousels at the airport, the BBC reports.

A fault in an electricity substation around 3:30am caused a series of power cuts and meant that bags had to be moved manually causing delays to flights with some passengers arriving at their destinations without their luggage.

Power was restored by 10:30am, however, 2000 bags were left at the airport for forwarding on later flights.
