FLIGHTS at Southampton Airport were delayed this morning following a minor collision between two planes.

The tail of a Glasgow-bound plane clipped the stationary Manchester-bound aircraft as it was being pushed to the runway, causing minor damage. Both flights were delayed for between two and three hours as Flybe organised alternative planes.
