Passengers camp out at Heathrow after snow delays
LONDON - Passengers were forced to sleep on the floor at London's Heathrow Airport overnight, media said Saturday, after heavy snow grounded hundreds of flights and left thousands of people stranded.
A spokesman for the airport, one of the busiest in the world, said a further 100 flights had been cancelled on Saturday morning, on top of about 400 that were grounded Friday by the bad weather sweeping Britain.
The Eurostar train service also reported further delays, saying snow and ice in Britain and northern France had led to speed restrictions. It also cancelled two trains.
British media showed pictures of hundreds of people sleeping on the floor at Heathrow overnight Friday.
