Hundreds spend night at Stansted airport as snow and ice hit flights
Wintry weather affects Ryanair and EasyJet flights to and from Essex airport as some passengers wait eight hours to reclaim baggage
Hundreds of people were forced to spend the night at Stansted airport as wintry conditions hit, causing dozens of flights to be cancelled or delayed.
Snow and ice affected Ryanair and EasyJet flights to and from the airport, which primarily serves London and the surrounding areas to the north of the capital, forcing many to spend hours waiting in the terminal.
Stansted Airport a disgrace. Waiting for baggage for 3 hours & still told no idea when it will arrive. This follows 4 hour flight delay arriving at Stansted due to small amount of snow. Thousands in the same situation in baggage hall. @STN_Airport #Stansted pic.twitter.com/M96QNS1KM8
