Flights were cancelled or suspended at Leeds Bradford Airport due to heavy snow blocking the runway last night (Friday).

Leeds Bradford was forced to halt flights, with a notice on its website last night saying: “As a result of adverse weather conditions, Leeds Bradford International Airport is presently closed.

“We recommend you contact your airline or tour operator and check the status of your flight before arriving at the airport.”

A Department for Transport spokesman said: “As winter weather grips some areas of the country we would advise people intending to travel to check weather and local conditions before they set out.

“The Highways Agency and local highway authorities across the country are working hard to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

“Passengers travelling into or out of Kings Cross affected by over running engineering work should check with National Rail Enquiries for service information.”
