Gatwick Airport Christmas Eve chaos a 'wake-up call'

The chaos at Gatwick Airport on Christmas Eve should be "a wake-up call for airports across the UK", a report by MPs has said.

More than 11,000 passengers at the West Sussex airport were affected by delays and cancellations on 24 December.

After flooding caused a power failure, there was "confusion" and a "lack of information" at the airport, the House of Commons Transport Committee said.

Richard Westcott reports.
