Short delays were caused to flights leaving Gatwick Airport last night (Sunday) after a fox was struck by a plane on the runway at about 9.40pm.

Departures were held up briefly and there were delays of about five to 10 minutes, but the runway stayed open throughout.

Arriving aircraft continued to land as normal.
