UK airports latest: Services return to normal after heavy snow

UK airports are reporting normal and near-normal services today as weather conditions continue to improve following this week's heavy snow.

Rail services to Gatwick and Heathrow are also back to normal.

Snow was expected to move north yesterday, but airports in Scotland and the northeast have not been hit as hard as those in the south, with Newcastle reporting no problems and Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow operating near to full services.

The Met Office has warned that more snow may be on the way, with northern Scotland, Wales and the southwest most at risk.

Over 860 arrivals and departures were cancelled at Heathrow when snow struck the south on Sunday and Monday. Road and rail travel were also severely affected, forcing many businesses to close.
