DOZENS of flights at Manchester airport have been cancelled and grounded due to a refuelling issue.

Airport bosses say the problem has been caused by a power issue earlier this afternoon.

Passengers have taken to social media to share their frustrations, with some reporting having been stranded for several hours.

However, the airport has confirmed that engineers are onsite working to fix the issue.

A Manchester Airport spokesman said: "Due to a power issue this afternoon there is currently an issue with the fuel supply at the airport and we have engineers on-site working to fix this.

"Please speak to your airline for specific flight information and updates."
