Cold snap causes travel disruption
January 15th, 2013 by elisa

The UK is experiencing travel delays due to the recent cold snap. At the time of writing, Norwich Airport is closed and has cancelled its flights. Passengers are advised to contact their airlines for further details to rebook their flights.

12 Met Office yellow weather warnings are in place across much of the country. These are to alert people of potentially severe weather which could affect driving conditions and cause travel delays.

The cold weather is expected to last all week, with BBC forecasters predicting more snow for eastern England on Thursday, spreading to south-west England and parts of Wales on Friday.

Elsewhere in the world, snow caused the cancellation of 71 flights at Narita airport in Tokyo yesterday, leaving 3,400 travellers stranded. Staff at the Japanese airport distributed sleeping bags, water and crackers to the travellers as they waited for flights to resume.

Around 8cm of snow fell in central Tokyo and surrounding areas, causing travel disruption and leaving thousands without power.
