Fog blog – be careful out there!02.11.15
Not sure if any of you have noticed, but err, it’s quite foggy out there at the moment.
A dense fog seems to have settled over the country, causing traffic delays and flight disruptions all over.
Severe weather warnings have been issued by The Met Office across the majority of the UK, as the fog is expected to stay with us for the rest of today and tonight. In some areas, visibility has been reduced to less than 100 metres. A West Midlands Ambulance worker also tweeted a warning about the conditions, advising people to drive slowly, use fog lights, or just stay inside. Commuters are also being advised to allow for extra time in their usual journeys to work.
Birmingham International Airport announced last night that it was accepting divert landings from other UK airports due to the poor visibility caused by the fog
Even Eamonn Holmes, one of the nation’s most familiar faces of morning television, was unable to make it out of Belfast to London in time to present his Sunrise television news programme this morning.
We urge you all to take extra care out there on your travels. Drive very carefully, allow for extra time in getting anywhere and, if applicable, remember to wear your driving glasses!
