It started snowing quite heavily on Sunday night in London, very unusual for February. Monday morning dawns and London is blanketed with about a foot of snow.
As we don’t normally get much snow in London, the infrastructure is not set up to deal with snow so the transport system completely died. Today, there were very few tubes running, no trains, no buses. Heathrow running on long delays and Terminal 5 closed for most the day.We also saw major delays at other airports in London leaving lots of passengers stranded. (Most passengers will not get much compensation for this unless their travel insurance covers it.)
As most people did not have to work today, 6 million Londoners were left to play in the snow. Here are some scenes from around London.
