A woman from Hethersett whose car is parked at Luton Airport has been told to expect the worst after last night's brutal blaze.

A fire ripped through an on-site multi-storey car park shortly before 9pm.

Hundreds of vehicles are thought to have been destroyed.

Ms Cozens said she does not know how they will get home with their gear as they have only been offered £50 per person to cover transport.

Speaking to local radio she said: "I spoke to a very kind chap at Luton airport and I said 'Can you tell me what's going on, is my car safe?'

"He said 'I can't tell you as an individual car but I can tell you that there is an awful lot of damage'.

"While I was talking to him I said my car was on the top floor and he said 'Well, it's probably on the bottom floor now'."

At least 150 planes due to arrive or depart from Luton airport have been cancelled and a further 27 arrivals were diverted to airports as far away as Cardiff, Liverpool and Manchester.

Estimates suggest the journeys of 30,000 passengers have been disrupted.
