Manchester airport runs out of aviation fuel

Aviation fuel is being sent to Manchester Airport after it ran out of supplies, according to the suppliers.

A spokesman for the Essar refinery in Cheshire, which pipes fuel to the airport, said production was "now back to normal".

Stocks are expected to return to average levels by Thursday morning, an airport spokesman said.

He added some of the 150 flights scheduled from 18:00 BST till 06:00 on Thursday, could be disrupted.
