A technical issue is causing delays to flights through all of Scotland's main airports.

Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Prestwick airports have been affected by the incident at the Scottish Air Traffic Control centre at Prestwick.

Air traffic controllers Nats said there had been interference with some radio frequencies used to talk to aircraft.

It said the faulty piece of equipment had now been removed from service and the situation was improving.

The knock-on effect means all flights at Edinburgh Airport are delayed.

At Glasgow Airport three flights have been cancelled  - one to Gatwick and two to Amsterdam -  and delays are expected throughout the day.

There are  a small number of delays on southbound flights from Aberdeen Airport.  It hopes to return to normal as soon as possible.

'Expect delays'

Nats spokesman Paul Haskins told BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland programme: "We've had a technical problem overnight with interference with some of our radio frequencies which we use to speak to speak to aircraft.

                                                                                                   

"It only affects some parts of Scottish airspace and flights from and to some Scottish airports but there may be delays as a result this morning.

"We have identified the cause and isolated the problem and the situation is now improving."

A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport said: "Due to an ongoing issue at the Scottish Airspace control centre there will be a delay to all flights this morning. We are still assessing the situation but customers should expect delays."

One traveller tweeted to say they were "stuck on a plane" at Glasgow Airport.

A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said it was experiencing some delays but that the situation was getting back to normal.
