Britain's airways were thrown into chaos today as the main air traffic control computer failed, sparking new fears over safety.

Flights already in the air were diverted to other European airports, and take-offs were suspended when the National Air Traffic Control System failed.

Information from the West Drayton computer centre which processes data for all British commercial flights was blacked out from 6.05am for a crucial 16-minute period. Data for all flights had to be hand-written, causing massive delays to flights in-bound and taking off.
