A number of flights from Cork and Dublin Airports to various London airports have been cancelled this morning due to freezing fog.

Temperatures fell as low as -8 degrees in parts of the UK last night, resulting in a dense freezing fog sweeping southern parts of the country.

Passengers are being urged to check the latest flight information with their airline.

The following flights have so far been confirmed as cancelled this morning:

  • Aer Lingus flight EI154 from Dublin to London Heathrow at 07:35;

A status yellow fog warning is in place in London, South-West and South East London until 10.30 this morning.

Heathrow has so far cancelled over 100 flights due to "reduced visibility" at the airport throwing travel plans for many passengers into disarray.
