People have been urged to check with their airline ahead of flying after strong winds caused a number of delays to flights on Tuesday.

Edinburgh Airport was closed to inbound flights during Tuesday and outbound flights were being assessed individually, something which reinforces the importance of decent travel insurance cover.

Severe weather warnings were issued by the Met Office with the north, Scotland and the East of England most affected.

Airports in the south of England were also hit, with Heathrow reporting a number of delays as well as cancellations of some flights.

Gatwick Airport also reported that strong winds had affected some of its flights.
