BBC report:

"Twenty-eight flights were cancelled and 26 diverted to other airports after the air traffic control problems on Wednesday.

The airport experienced a problem in its control tower, affecting services for two hours from about 17:00 BST.

One departure and 11 arrivals have been cancelled on Thursday, the airport has confirmed.

A spokeswoman for Gatwick Airport said the cancellations on Thursday were a result of planes being in the wrong place following Wednesday's disruption. "
