The Aer Lingus service to and from Ireland West Airport Knock to London Gatwick this afternoon has been cancelled.

The cancellation is due to the fact that a drone has forced London Gatwick to close.

The drone is still flying above the runway and has caused huge disruption so far, with 16 flights from Dublin Airport either cancelled or diverted.

British police haven’t tracked down the person flying the drone and says it is a deliberate act.

Thousands of passengers trying to get home for Christmas have been left stranded.
