Scottish airports hit as fresh snow falls in Britain

6th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

Scotland's busiest airport was closed again on Monday as fresh snow covered parts of Britain and freezing fog ushered in another bitterly cold week.

Edinburgh Airport, closed for several days last week, was shut until at least 1800 GMT, while Scotland's second-largest air hub, Glasgow, halted flights while snow was cleared from the runway but was hoping to reopen later Monday.

Britain's two main airports, Heathrow and Gatwick near London, were operating most flights, following a slight rise in temperatures across Britain over the weekend.

All airports advised travellers to check with their airlines before travelling.

It was back to lessons for the majority of Scottish children after an impromptu week off when their schools were shut for safety reasons because of the snowy and icy conditions.
