The major airport’s single runway has been temporarily shut after British Airways #BA2668 to Marrakesh landed shortly after taking off.
The plane circled 15 times near Gatwick at 8,000ft after suffering the issue before heading back to the airport due to hydraulic leak.
UPDATE Operations are resuming. Aer Lingus #EI237 to Dublin is the first to take off. easyJet #U28352 is the first to land.
The plane has come to a full stop on the runway and is surrounded by fire engines.
