LONDON_London's Luton Airport suspended all flight arrivals and many departures Sunday after a private jet overshot a runway when landing.

The airport, a base for short-haul flights to British and European destinations, said Sunday's departures on budget airline easyJet had been canceled. Arriving flights were diverted to other English airports.

A spokeswoman for the airport said a private jet carrying one passenger and three crew had overshot the runway and was stuck in mud. She said no one was injured in the accident.

The airport said it hoped to restore normal service Monday morning. It advised passengers due to fly to check with their airlines before setting out.
