Leah Washington, who survived a horrific accident at Alton Towers in 2015, found herself among the thousands of travelers affected by a massive air traffic disruption.

The chaos unfolded as a 'technical issue' led to the grounding of numerous flights in and out of the UK.

The National Air Traffic Controller Service (NATS) cited a technical glitch as the reason for the delays and cancellations, which left passengers stranded at various airports.

Washington was returning from her hen party in Portugal when she and her friends were informed that their flight back home was canceled.

Despite the inconvenience, Leah and her friends seemed to take the news in stride, sharing updates on social media. Meanwhile, other passengers, including TV presenter Gabby Logan, were also caught in the travel turmoil.

The technical issue was eventually resolved, but not before causing significant disruptions and frustrations among travelers.

While Leah Washington and her friends managed to maintain their spirits, the incident led to heated exchanges between passengers and airport staff, particularly for those flying with Ryanair.
