The plane crashed and then caught fire just before 6pm yesterday.

Evening flights due into the airport were diverted to Zurich.

It’s not yet known if the dead person was a passenger or the pilot.

Hundreds of Arsenal football supporters were among those stranded last night after their team’s win against Basel Football Club. British Airways says their Gatwick flight last night was cancelled.

Services are returning to normal this morning – although with some delays.
