    London Luton Airport says the earlier snow has forced it to significantly reduce the number of inbound flights it is able to accept - although the airport remains "open and operational".

    Some flights have been cancelled and some have been delayed in order to allow de-icing of the aircraft.

    It believes the worst of the weather is now over.

    It re-opened at 12:51, however Stansted is advising passengers to check with their airline before travelling to the airport.
