Snow: Gatwick Airport opens after 10cm cleared from runway

HARD work from teams at Gatwick mean that the airport opened again at 2.45pm this afternoon (Saturday).

Around 10cm of snow was cleared from the runway itself, plus taxiing areas.

There will be a knock-on effect of the closure with flights and passengrs are advised to keep checking with airlines.

The snow has made the roads round the airport hazardous and anyone travelling to and from the area is advised to take extreme care.
