Gatwick's runway has reopened after drones caused the airport to shut down for more than a day.

The airport said the runway was "currently available" and a limited number of aircraft were scheduled for departure and arrival.

Easyjet said it would resume services but expected departures and landings to be restricted at first.

Thousands of passengers remain stranded at the airport as police continue their search for the operator of the drones.

Flights were brought to a standstill after devices were seen over the airfield on Wednesday.
