A machine failure resulted in airspace over London being closed, according to the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation. All flights to and from Heathrow were put on hold; a spokesperson said that the outage was due to a technical problem at the Swanwick air traffic control center. Flights landed at Stansted but all departing flights were held. Flights were held until around 7 pm local time. It’s unknown at this time how many flights were affected.
