Swanwick Control

Anyone know what went pop at Swanwick earlier? Apparently they had some technical issues and a lot of flights were cancelled.
Or was it just more staff shortages.

It wasn’t staff shortages it was a technical issue.

Not so sure there are too many glitches proportionally, and mitigated by building in contingency, multi and disparately routed data links etc etc.
