Some UK airports affected by snowfall

The UK woke up to a sea of snow this morning as the country was greeted with more cold weather. Some areas are expecting up to 30 cm of snow today, with more to come over the weekend.

Heathrow Airport has temporarily shut its northern runway to clear the snow but is hoping to open it later on today. The airport will then close its other runways and repeat the procedure. Across the rest of the country Bristol, Cardiff and Southampton airports have all been closed with the latter hoping to open later on today.

British Airways if offering its passengers the option to change their flights, free of charge, to reduce the number of passengers travelling in the coming up days. BA passengers that currently have flights booked for the weekend can now defer their journeys, if they chose, between 24th January and 10th February.

The Met Office has released a red warning for snow in some parts of Wales and an amber warning for Northern Ireland and most of England. Scotland is currently not badly affected, but is expecting snow later on in the week.

Other forms of transport have also been affected by the fresh snow, with many major roads being partly closed, and train timetables across the UK being altered, serving a limited service.

Steve Crosthwaite, head of the National Traffic Operations Centre, has asked drivers to allow more time to travel. “"During periods of severe weather we also suggest people consider whether their journey is essential" he added. The snow and cold weather is expected to die down later today but carry on through the weekend.
