It’s snow joke as more travel chaos is predicted

SNOW caused chaos around the UK yesterday as road, rail and air services were disrupted. Weather forecasters said temperatures were set to freeze overnight once again marking one of the coldest starts to December in more than 20 years.

Gatwick Airport, which was closed today because of the cold snap, said it would be at least 10am today before the airport reopened leading to significant disruption, delays and cancellations. Meanwhile Southeastern trains, which runs services out of London Victoria and Charing Cross said it was operating an emergency timetable today and that services will finish early.

Also, half of Eurostar services between London and Brussels today have been cancelled, as have seven out of 17 services each way between London and Paris.
