Large Number Of STN Diversions Now? 25/7

Fri Jul 25, 2014 11:10 pm

Hi,

I am looking at the STN website and it is showing a number of diversions from several destinations. At least 7 or 8 at this time. Does anyone know why this is? Is also 16/17 aircraft backed up waiting to land, is this normal for STN?

I saw a tweet earlier mentioning a hole in the runway, that's the only info I can provide, most likely that was the cause.
