Passengers have been reporting long check-in delays at London Stansted Airport following a power cut.

Officials at the Essex facility said power had since been restored, with engineers working hard to get systems up and running again.

The airport said flights were operating as normal, but people were being told to allow plenty of time for travel.

Some passengers said on social media that it was taking an hour to get through security.
