Flights have been disrupted due to heavy fog in London.

London City Airport diverted all inbound flights today. There have also been delays at Heathrow and Gatwick. Travellers have been advised to contact their airlines about possible cancellations.

At least a dozen British Airways flights were cancelled due to the poor conditions in the south east of England. The airline warned that there could be knock-on delays.

Some passengers have been sharing their travel woes on Twitter.

The news comes after Virgin Atlantic pilots voted to take industrial action on 23 December due to an ongoing row over union recognition.

The workers of Swissport, the world's largest ground and cargo handler, are striking because of low pay. Over 1,500 check-in staff, baggage handlers and cargo crew will walk out on 23 and 24 December.

And that's not all. British Airways cabin crew are also striking. After a row over pay and working conditions, a possible 4,500 cabin crew staff have voted to walk out on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
