Some Glasgow flights have been cancelled due to a fire at a car park in Luton Airport.

The airport has been closed after a fire ripped through a multi-storey car park on Tuesday evening, causing it to collapse.

Firefighters are tackling the blaze and it appears to have destroyed hundreds of cars.

Flights have been cancelled since the fire broke out at around 9pm.

According to Glasgow Airport's website, Wednesday morning easyJet flights to and from Luton have been cancelled. 

Four firefighters and a member of airport staff were taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and another firefighter was treated at the scene.

Footage posted on social media showed flames and smoke tearing through cars parked at the newly-built airport car park.

Russell Taylor, 41, an account director from Kinross, saw the flames after flying into Luton Airport from Edinburgh.

He told the PA news agency: “There were a couple of fire engines with a car ablaze on the upper floor of the car park at just after 9pm.

“A few minutes later most of the upper floor was alight, car alarms were going off with loud explosions from cars going up in flames.

“The speed in which the fire took hold was incredible."

A spokesperson for Luton Airport said: “Our priority remains supporting the emergency services and the safety of our passengers and staff.

"Therefore, we have now taken the decision to suspend all flights until 3pm on Wednesday, October 11.

“Passengers are advised not to travel to the airport at this time, as access remains severely restricted.”

More than 15 crews from Bedfordshire Fire Service tackled the blaze with nearby residents advised to close their windows to avoid the smoke.

A brigade spokesman said: “One-half of the structure is fully involved in fire and the building has suffered a significant structural collapse.

“Fire crews are working to extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to adjacent buildings and vehicles on air side of the airport.”
