Fog over southern England grounds more than 100 flights

Heavy fog over much of central and southern England has led to the cancellation of more than 100 flights at London's Heathrow and City airports.

At City every flight until noon was cancelled or delayed, with inbound flights diverted to Stansted which, along with Gatwick, was unaffected.

Heathrow Airport said 80 flights had been cancelled, while just one flight had landed at Southampton airport.

Richard Lister reports.
