Winter Weather Causes Travel Headaches
Snow across the United Kingdom has fallen, with significant falls of up to 25 centimetres in Scotland, Ireland and northern England, with 15-20 centimetres expected to fall around central and southwest England. The travel nightmare has shut down several airports and trains have been delayed or cancelled altogether across Britain. The Met Office has warned that London and the southeast will experience significant rain and wintry mix and wind speeds up to 70 mph (110 km/h).
London Stansted, Birmginham, Edinburgh, and Dublin airports had to wait as snow was cleared from their runways before flights could take off, but as the day has worn on, it has grown apparent that air travel across the United Kingdom has been interrupted due to the inclement weather.
