14 Juillet, 2019, 16:16 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Flights are now taking off and coming into the airport normally. Guess I could be sitting on this plane for a while ** - travelling to Belfast from Leeds Bradford Airport'. At least one flight, Eastern Airways flight E7601 from Southampton (SOU) to Leeds Bradford (LBA) diverted to Humberside (HUY) after holding in the LBA area for some time.

Up to three Jet2 flights were affected by the incident.

Airport bosses confirmed a drone was spotted by the pilot of a incoming flight, closing the airport. Other flights have been placed on hold.

This affected flights for around 140,000 passengers.

That was a stronger New Zealand side than this one, but Kane Williamson, their captain, is happy to embrace the underdog tag. England football manager Gareth Southgate urged them to get over the finishing line by beating New Zealand on Sunday.

Police said they received a report of a drone flying near to the Old Ball roundabout in Horsforth, just south of Leeds Bradford Airport at 14:03 BST.

'Flights were temporarily grounded at Leeds Bradford Airport as a precaution and resumed again at around 2.48pm'.

There have been several high-profile drone incidents near airports in the past year.

The 13:50 arrival from Southampton, 14:15 arrival from Malaga and 14:15 arrival from Alicante are now being held over the airport. To be clear, this is *not* an Extinction Rebellion action and not something we'd support.
