Disabled man dies at Gatwick as flight cancellation chaos continues

The announcement to curtail departures and arrivals was planned before the incident on Wednesday at the airport’s North Terminal, which involving a passenger who had arrived on an easyJet flight.
The unnamed man was one of three “passengers with restricted mobility” (PRMs) on the aircraft who required special assistance. The plane was met by a member of staff of the aviation logistics provider Wilson James.
