Fog causes travel disruption

Londoners are waking up to a foggy Monday morning, which is having a big impact on commutes.

Heathrow has cancelled 10% of departures as a precaution with delays expected at all the other airports too.

Drivers are being warned to take extra care on the roads and leave extra time for journeys.

We've got extra passenger ambassadors in the terminals to provide assistance for those travelling today. Once again we would like to apologise for the disruption.

– Heathrow spokesman

The Met Office weather warning is valid until midday, with fog expected to slowly clear throughout the morning.

A rally against plans to build a third runway at Heathrow Airport is due to take place later this morning in Parliament Square.

All the candidates to succeed Boris Johnson as Mayor of London from the main political parties are expected to attend, including the Labour MP for Tooting Sadiq Khan and his Tory rival, Richmond MP Zac Goldsmith.

Earlier this year, the Airports Commission recommended expansion at Heathrow Airport as the best way to increase airport capacity for London and the south east.

However, London Gatwick has continued to make the case for why it should be allowed to expand.
