Disruption at Leeds Bradford Airport because of weather conditions
Some flights are currently suspended at Leeds Bradford Airport because of the weather.
The airport is advising people to contact their airline or tour operator and check the status of their flight before arriving at the airport.
It comes as Bradford Council reported that snow drifts of up to 10ft are still causing problems in Bradford today.
They are advising people to avoid Otley Road, close to Dick Hudsons Pub, where abandoned cars and snow drifts have led to the road closing.
Gritters will once again be out on main routes from 6.30pm this evening.
All higher routes in the area are still badly affected by drifting snow and police have advised against all travel unless absolutely essential.
Transdev has suspended its 696 and 697 bus sevices because of the road conditions in the Denholme area, but it said gritters were on their way. Its 705 was running via Park Lane to the doctors’ surgery only.
