Compensation after delay due to airports fault?

East midlands airport. Delay of 3.5 hours with ryanair which we were told was due to weather (fog) as pilot could not see to land and so diverted to manchester.
When eventually flown, new pilot stated that reason for delay was not fog, but that electrical outage at east midlands had knocked out the runway landing lights. He said the diverted flight could have landed in the fog had these lights been working, but as they werent, he diverted, hence delay. Lights could not be simply turned back,on as apparently this involved an engineer call out from huddersfield(!)

My question is, can I claim flight delay compensation as the reason lies apparently with the airport, not the airline.
