British Airways: All flights cancelled amid IT crash

British Airways has cancelled all flights from Heathrow and Gatwick because of global computer problems.
A "major IT system failure is causing very severe disruption to our flight operations worldwide", the airline said.
It apologised for the "global system outage" and said there was no evidence of a cyber attack.
The GMB union has suggested the failure could have been avoided, had the airline not outsourced its IT work.
BA refuted the claim, saying: "We would never compromise the integrity and security of our IT systems".
All passengers affected by the failure - which coincides with the first weekend of the half-term holiday for many in the UK - will be offered the option of rescheduling or a refund.
The airline, which had previously said flights would be cancelled until 18:00 BST, has now cancelled all flights for Saturday and asked passengers not to come to Gatwick or Heathrow airports.
Other airlines flying in and out of Heathrow and Gatwick are unaffected.
