Heathrow Airport is to cancel a further 10 per cent of its flights tomorrow because of poor visibility caused by today’s snowfall.

One fifth of flights today at the airport were grounded because of the adverse weather conditions.

Passengers with plans to fly tomorrow are advised to check with their airlines once schedules are finalised to see if their flight is affected.

A spokesman for Heathrow said the airport was coping well today after giving advance notice of cancellations.

She said: “The runways are open and everything is fine at the moment because passengers have had more time to check flights with their airline.

“In 2010, the airport was almost completely closed for several days. This is not the same at all.”

The runway at London City Airport will be closed until 7pm today to clear snow. Gatwick Airport is operating as normal but is warning of disruption and delays to some flights while Stansted has also put travellers on notice despite remaining fully operational.

South West Trains is to run an amended timetable tomorrow, with services from London Waterloo to Chessington South, Shepperton, and Hampton Court running during peak hours.

Southern will also run a revised timetable on Monday and has cancelled several services to Brighton, the Brighton to Victoria Gatwick Express service, services from Norwood Junction to London Bridge and both ways from West Croydon to London Bridge.

Many Southeastern and First Capital Connect services are running with delays of up to 30 minutes.

A signalling problem is causing disruption at Ealing Broadway, leading to delays of up to 60 minutes to and from London Paddington.
