Standstead Airport was closed yesterday following a discovery of a hole in the Runway. Flights travelling to and from London Stansted were diverted and cancelled on Sunday evening after officials closed the runway for the repairs to be carried out.

Passengers who were on board flights that were diverted to other airports including Luton and East Midlands said they were told by their pilots that there was a small hole in the runway.

The airport said the runway was closed between 5.30pm and 6.10pm for minor repairs.
