Flights suspended at Leeds Bradford and East Midlands

Leeds Bradford International Airport and East Midlands Airport have been forced to suspend fights this morning due to the heavy snowfall.

Humberside Airport has been closed since 8:00am, while Doncaster's Robin Hood Airport closed for a short time before reopening with a limited service.

A spokesman for East Midlands said it was hoped that planes would be able to depart and arrive at some point today.

A spokesperson for Leeds Bradford urged travellers to check with their airline or tour operator before heading to the airport.

Birmingham Airport, meanwhile, said it had suffered no problems because of wintry weather so far.
