The problem first emerged at around 2pm on Sunday as passengers went onto social media to report they were stuck on stationary aircraft at all three terminals.

Some waited for three hours on board until they learned their flight was being cancelled.

They were disembarked and many of them were being put in hotels around the airport, hopeful of another departure in the morning.

Unconfirmed reports suggested it was a problem with the electricity supply which powers the fuel delivery system at the airport.

Dozens of flights were cancelled or delayed.
