>> British Airways says most flights are now running after a power supply problem disrupted its global operations. Thousands of passengers were stranded across London's busiest airports with bank holiday travel plans cancelled as BA's customer service phone lines went down too. The airline says it's operating the majority of services from Heathrow, and a near-normal schedule from Gatwick.

But Heathrow, which is Europe's busiest airport says it expects further delays and cancellations of British Airways flights. Disruption is expected to continue beyond the bank holiday as BA works through a backlog of bookings and luggage. Heathrow and Gatwick have told passengers not to travel to the airports unless they rebooked on other flights.

With hundreds of bags still being sorted, BA is advising passengers not to return to collect them, offering to courier bags to customers instead. British Airways says there's no evidence of any cyber attack. As services are slowly restored, but it adds that there will be some knock-on disruption to schedules as aircraft and crew are out of position around the world.
