IT failure leads to Heathrow Airport disruption
The UK's busiest airport was struck by an IT failure at the weekend. Thousands of passengers at Heathrow Airport were affected as a systems crash caused flights to be cancelled. The technical problem was resolved late on Sunday night but delays continued at the beginning of the working week. Heathrow apologised to travellers and brought in extra staff to deal with the subsequent disruption.
