A pointless report without, it appears, any substantial effort by the journalist to find out why. The ready use of the term "chaos", which is up there with "plummet" in the media aviation vocabulary, further cheapens the report. Knock-on effects of the torrential rain earlier in the day - which led to some diversions, I think - may have been a factor.
