Bristol Airport Delays Due To Snapped Belt

After disruption at Gatwick Airport due to a failed luggage belt, the region's airport has suffered a similar fate. Bristol International suffered multiple belt failures this morning, causing delays and a small number of cancellations.

'' It began about eight o'clock this morning, without any word of warning people's trousers and skirt belts began failing all over the terminal. It wasn't confined to just airport staff, but all airlines and some catering outlets. While this was happening, no check in was available, the whole place came to a complete halt.'' That comment from Roger Crew, general manager at Bristol.

There is an unconfirmed report of the problem affecting a pilot in mid-flight as it was due to land at Bristol. A source at the as yet unnamed airline said the pilot was incapacitated and the flight was landed safely by the co-pilot who landed ''by the seat of his pants''.

Swindon Centric Says ; Lose weight or buy stronger belts, one of the two!
