Gatwick Airport - expected to reopen on Thursday morning - will remain closed until at least 0600 GMT Friday, with another 15cm of snow falling overnight.

A Gatwick spokesman said: "We are doing everything we can to resume operations. However, conditions have deteriorated considerably. Our teams are working around the clock to make the runway safe for aircraft to use and get our airlines and passengers flying again."
