Stansted apologies for security chaos

Social media shows passengers missing flights from London
London’s low-cost Stansted airport, whose airlines include Ryanair, Jet2 and easyJet as well as a large number of seasonal and charter flights and some British Airways flights, is getting back to normal after faulty X-ray scanners meant passengers missed flights due to huge delays at security.
Pictures of massive crowds circulated on social media amid claims that queues were at a standstill for over an hour.
One passenger complained to the newspaper The Sun that no staff were available to help and that some airlines made the decision to depart without passengers.
The airport said that “a technical issue” with X-ray machines meant capacity to process passengers had been reduced and apologised. It added that the issue had been resolved.
