Car on runway causes Brisbane flight delays

A WOMAN has driven onto the Brisbane Airport runway after smashing through a fence on Tuesday night.

All flights in and out of the airport were suspended for about two hours because of the major security breach.

Australian Federal Police said a 37-year-old woman had been taken to hospital following the incident.

"The AFP is continuing to conduct enquiries into this matter. Further information will be provided in due course," the AFP said in a statement.

Around midnight, the airport tweeted that the runway had reopened and flights were set to resume.
