    London City Airport flights disrupted after 'Black Lives Matter' protesters occupy runway

    Nine demonstrators got onto the runway and chained themselves to a tripod at about 5.40am, police said.
    The protesters, who claim to be acting in support of Black Lives Matter UK, are said to have got onto the tarmac at the airport after using a boat to sail across the Royal Docks.
    It came as thousands of British Airways customers suffered hours of delays at airport check-in desks due to a technical glitch.
    A statement released by the protest group said: "This morning activists in support of Black Lives Matter UK shutdown London City Airport in the London Borough of Newham.

    Posting on Facebook from the airport, Francisco Javier Orts Martinez said: "Mayhem in here and my poor nephew and his girlfriend are stuck in Paris."
