Travellers face transport chaos on Sunday as a third of flights from Heathrow Airport are cancelled amid forecasts of heavy snow, and freezing conditions create dangerous driving conditions.
The moves comes as forecasters predicted up to six inches of snow and ice this weekend with temperatures falling to -12 and windchill making it feel significantly colder.
