A fault with the departure screens at Bristol Airport has led to flight information being written by hand on noticeboards.

Passengers have posted pictures of the makeshift boards on social media.

"Flights are unaffected and details of check-in desks, boarding gates, and arrival/departure times will be made over the public address system," an airport statement said.

The problem was first reported in the early hours.
