Weather disruption continues across UK

Snow in the UK is bringing travel disruption

Yesterday’s widespread snow is causing continued disruption across the UK, with several airports and rail companies warning passengers to check for changes to their scheduled departure before leaving.

Heathrow hit headlines on Sunday as flights were grounded and travellers took to social media to express their anger. The airport warns that a reduced flight schedule will continue today due to “crew and aircraft being out of position” following yesterday’s disruption. British Airways has issued a statement saying it agrees with the decision and will update the status of any flights it plans to cancel or delay.

Meanwhile, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Leeds Bradford airports are all warning of possible delays and cancellations as a result of the weather.

National Rail reports delays on several networks, including Arriva Trains Wales, Chiltern Railways, the Gatwick Express, Great Western Railway, London Northwestern Railway, Merseyrail, Scotrail, Southern, Thameslink and West Midlands.

While disruption is expected to diminish as the weather improves, anyone travelling by plane or rail is advised to check the status of their service before leaving.

Why the UK has always to panic about weather? It's Winter and in Winter, sometimes it snows.But looking at other - most of them manage to operate without hysterical panic... It's just sad how unprepared we are each year.
