Today's easyJet service from Inverness to Bristol has been cancelled.

The flight, scheduled to take off at 12.25pm, was the latest in a series of easyJet cancellations from the Highland airport this summer.

As yet it is not clear what led to the cancellation, but it came after a day of flights disruption across the country including at Inverness Airport due to a technical issue which hit UK air traffic control systems.

Monday's incoming and outgoing flight between Inverness and Amsterdam was cancelled while flights to and from Luton, Bristol, Belfast, Gatwick and Heathrow were delayed as a result.

Thousands of people around the UK faced flight delays after National Air Traffic Services confirmed it was experiencing technical issues and had applied traffic flow restrictions to maintain safety.

A HIAL spokesperson said on Monday: "Inverness Airport like many other airports across the country has been affected by the issues with the national UK air traffic control system, with a number of flights experiencing delays.

"The airport team is working closely with our airline partners to manage the delays.

"Passengers should continue to check with their airline for information regarding their flight."
