Northern Ireland’s second largest airport, City of Derry airport was forced to cancel all flights today after the building was hit by overnight flooding.
Heavy rainfall on Tuesday night caused a delude of water to enter the building.
A spokesperson for the airport advised passengers not to come to the airport and to contact their airline directly about their flights.
A spokesperson for Derry City and Strabane Council apologised for the inconvenience caused.
Other parts of the north west were also affected, with flooding causing the partial collapse of a bridge in Claudy.
The Met Office has since confirmed that two-thirds of the average rainfall for all of August came down in Northern Ireland on a night.
