Flights disrupted after computer failure at UK control centre

Passengers are facing widespread flight disruption after a computer failure at the UK's air traffic control centre.

Nats said it would take time for flight schedules to return to normal after an earlier technical fault was resolved.

The government said the disruption was "unacceptable" and demanded a "full explanation" of what had gone wrong.
