AIRPORT COMMUNICATIONS BREAKDOWN

Flights resume at Arlanda

Update: 1430

The tehnical breakdown in the control tower at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport has been resolved and both incoming and outgoing services have returned to normal, reports news agency TT.

"It was a circuit that had shorted out. We've replaced it and got the system going again," Klas Nilsson, an airport spokesman told news agency TT.

All flights to and from the airport were suspended for several hours on Saturday morning when the control tower lost computer contact with planes.
