LONDON (Reuters) – London’s Heathrow airport resumed flights on Wednesday after operations were briefly disrupted at Europe’s biggest airport when an aircraft went out of service, blocking one of its runways.

“For a matter of minutes one of the runways was out of service as an aircraft was towed from the taxiway. Heathrow is now operating as normal,” a spokeswoman for the airport said in a statement.
