TECHNICAL problems at Malaga airport have forced flights to be diverted to nearby airports in Sevilla and Granada. 

At least nine flights have been diverted due to radar failure so far.

The Twitter account Controladores Aéreos announced that the radar system in place at Malaga airport was experiencing difficulties.

Flight tracking graphs (above) show the confusion caused by the technical problems.

At this moment in time it is unknown if further flights will be affected but Aena have now announced that the problem has been resolved.
