Doncaster Sheffield Airport was among those who received an unexpected influx of passengers, as were Liverpool, and Beauvais in France.

A spokesman for the airline said: “Wizz Air sincerely apologises for all those passengers affected by the disruption at London Luton this weekend.

"This was caused by a weather-related power outage which unfortunately affected the landing systems at the airport. As a result a number of departing and arriving flights were diverted to other airports from where we are arranging transportation to original destinations.
