  • Published by Vedat

Tens of thousands of passengers faced travel chaos on Sunday, December 20 as dozens of flights were cancellations at Heathrow, with heavy snow and ice set to grip most of England for at least another four days.

London City Airport has also been affected and has closed its runway until 14:00 GMT. The airport urged passengers to check their flight status before travelling to the airport. Gatwick and Stansted airports are operating as normal, with teams on standby to clear snow if required.

The weather has also disrupted train services. Eurostar, Southeastern and South West Trains have all reported either delays or cancellations due to the adverse conditions.

Forecasters said the snowfall would continue in much of eastern Scotland and north-east England on Monday, while there could also be flurries in southern England and Northern Ireland.
