Southeastern said most of their routes are closed due to the wintry weather and they are warning commuters, “do not attempt to travel this morning.”

On Twitter, the Southeastern Railway said. “Because of the ongoing severe disruption on the network, please DO NOT TRAVEL this morning.

“Early morning services are being cancelled because of snow and ice on the track and we will not be able to provide a replacement bus service because of road conditions.”

A spokesperson said for Heathrow Airport said, “We encourage passengers to check their flight status with their airline for the latest information.”

The Met Office said, “Wintry showers will affect many areas of northern Scotland and parts of northeast England during this period.

“A few centimetres of snow are likely to accumulate at low levels with the potential for as much as 15-20 cm over higher ground. In addition, ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces, mainly where some of the showers fall as sleet close to coasts.”
