Airports returning to normal after Nats IT failure

Disruption at airports across Britain on Friday was caused by a computer failure "which has not been seen before", according to National Air Traffic Services (Nats), the body responsible for air traffic control.

Airports are returning to normal, although there were a small number of flight cancellations at Heathrow and Gatwick on Saturday morning.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin will be questioned by MPs on Monday about the chaos.

Christian Fraser reports.
