Heathrow power cut leaves thousands having to fly without luggage
Baggage system at London airport incapacitated after second incident at Terminal 5 within a month which has separated passengers from their luggage
Thousands of holidaymakers are believed to be without their luggage after a power failure at Heathrow airport disabled the electronic baggage systems.
The airport said it was working hard to reunite passengers with their bags as quickly as possible after the second incident in the space of about a month that left many passing through Terminal 5 unable to fly with their suitcases.
Heathrow is murder today, problems with baggage belts. Ditch your hold luggage if you can, or show up very early….

Baggage belt at Heathrow broken. Which means I’ll arrive in Aberdeen with no bag.
