Passengers were left waiting until 2 am at Stansted Airport as passport checks and delayed baggage handling led to hours of delays.

Footage filmed this morning (August 10) at the Essex airport shows a crowd looking weary while waiting for bags to arrive.

Traveller Miriam Gradel writes: "Hundreds of passengers are waiting at Stansted Airport after delays.

"Most are either waiting for loved ones to get through passport check, which took up to an hour, or waiting for their baggage to arrive, which took between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours."

She also claims onward travel options– such as trains and buses – were either fully booked or not running.
