London Gatwick airport runway briefly closed 

The runway at Britain’s London Gatwick airport was briefly closed on Monday after a plane’s tyre burst, a spokesman for the airport said.

The runway had reopened, he said. The airport’s website showed small delays for some flights.

Gatwick Airport said in a statement planes are currently using the airport’s back-up runway.

“We apologise as flights for the rest of the day will experience delay and there will be some cancellations,” the statement said.
