Flights to and from Britain’s London Luton airport were temporarily disrupted on Monday after soaring temperatures caused a defect in its runway.
Flights had been temporarily suspended “to allow for an essential runway repair after high surface temperatures caused a small section to lift”
Flights have resumed at London Luton Airport following repairs after high temperatures lifted a small section of the runway.
The airport said departing flights resumed at 17:40 BST, with inbound resuming 15 minutes later.
Easyjet and Ryanair both diverted some of their arrivals to other airports.
The damage occurred as the Met Office issued a red extreme heat warning in much of England, with temperatures set to hit 41C (106F) on Tuesday.
