A NUMBER OF flights to and from London have been cancelled this morning as dense fog in parts of the UK refuses to lift.

Across Ireland too, there is fog in places, but Met Éireann says it will clear in most places to reveal a generally cloudy day. The Met Office in the UK has lifted its “be aware” warning for England, but fog is still lingering on runways this morning.

Three flights due to depart from Dublin Airport for London and four due to arrive from London have already been cancelled this morning. Some flights have also been delayed.

Yesterday Heathrow airport cancelled 129 flights.

Passengers due to fly today are encouraged to contact their airline to check whether their flight will still be departing.
