Over 100 flights from Heathrow and London City airports were cancelled on Sunday due to foggy conditions
Heavy fog led to the cancellation of over 100 flights from Heathrow and London City airports on Sunday, and is likely to cause further disruptions on Monday.
A Met Office spokesman said on Sunday: "We have seen quite dense fog in the south east and east of England today, and overnight we expect that to become more widespread, with visibility reduced to 50 metres.
"Tomorrow fog will take a while to shift in London, the south east and the east of England up to York, and will only become less widespread in the late morning."
Heathrow airport said dense fog forced airlines to ground 63 inbound and 78 outbound flights on Sunday.
A spokeswoman for the airport said: "Passengers are being re-booked or put up in accommodation by airlines, while some domestic passengers are being taken in coaches to their destination."
Airline passengers need to make sure that they have taken out a comprehensive
travel insurance policy that covers for any delays and cancellations.
