Snow and wintry weather are still wreaking havoc on travellers in Britain, with flights cancelled, roads sheathed in ice and rail travel disrupted.

With temperatures dropping overnight as low as minus 11.6 Celsius (11 degrees Fahrenheit), hundreds of schools were closed today.

Europe's largest airport, Heathrow, warned today that some flights would be cancelled as it cleared the backlog of flights delayed by Sunday's snowfall.

Heathrow asked travellers to check with their airlines. In the world of interconnected air travel, any extended disruption quickly leaves planes and flight crews out of position, knocking them out of rotation for their next assignments. Agencies
