Travel chaos has descended on the UK as a result of the snow and ice

Which trains are experiencing delays and cancellations?

While there are delays across the country due to large-scale engineering works, industrial action, and signalling issues, no stations have been closed due to the bad weather - but that could change.

Passengers travelling on services in Scotland and Northern England are advised to check their journey before setting off.

Which airports are affected by the snow?

More than 10,000 frustrated travellers were left stranded after 146 services were cancelled in and out of Heathrow Airport due to the wintry weather in the morning of Sunday, March 18.

British Airways customers have been those mainly affected after the airline stopped 64 short-haul flights and trips to the US.

While Aer Lingus was forced to cancel trips to Belfast and Dublin and Lufthansa halted departures to Frankfurt and Munich.

Air France, KLM, Swiss and TAP Portugal have also cancelled services out of Heathrow.

BA told passengers: “We have merged a small number of flights travelling to or from Heathrow Airport.

“During cold weather conditions, aircraft have to be de-iced prior to departure to ensure that they are safe, and additional measures are taken to ensure the safety of our operation is maintained at all times.”

Gatwick Airport tweeted in the morning of Sunday, March 18 that some passengers would experience delays while aircraft were de-iced prior to departure.
