Power issues which led to almost 70 flights to and from Manchester Airport being cancelled on Sunday have been resolved, engineers said.

But a "small number of delays and cancellations" are expected on Monday following the power problem interrupting fuel supply.

An airport spokesman said there were a total of 69 cancellations.

Thirty-seven of the cancelled flights were arrivals and 32 were departures.

A statement from the airport said that "most scheduled flights" would operate as normal on Monday, but "there will be a small number of delays and cancellations as a result of the issues experienced".

Passengers are advised to check the status of their flight with their airline.
