A number of flights at Cardiff Airport have been hit by a strike by air traffic controllers in Spain.

Flights between Malaga and Alicante have been cancelled while flights between Antalya and Fuerteventura have been delayed.

The 24-hour strike started at 2300 BST on Tuesday in protest at the Spanish government's austerity measures.

Passengers are advised to check in as normal and to contact their airline or tour operator for further information.

Those due to travel on the cancelled bmibaby flights to Malaga and Alicante should contact the airline.

It apologised for any inconvenience caused.
