“Whitemare” at London’s Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport remained closed for a third day as the overnight temperature in Buckinghamshire, England dipped to as low as -20ºC.

“Ice, snow and sub-zero temperatures in northern Europe have disrupted travel, leaving Europe’s busiest airport Heathrow, near London, all but closed,” said a report.

Thousands of stranded passengers are expected to spend a second night on terminal floors at London’s Heathrow, described as “like a Third World refugee camp.”

Air and rail services were severely disrupted in other parts of the UK, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, northern France and northern Italy.

Up to half a million passengers have been stranded/affected, as more heavy snow is forecast for England, Wales and Scotland.
