Travel disruption possible due to snow, rain and strong winds

Weather forecasters are warning of further possible travel disruption later today after Storm Brendan forced airlines to divert a handful of flights yesterday.

Gales of up to 40mph meant at least seven Gatwick-bound flights were diverted to other airports last night.

Two Wizz Air flights, four easyJet services and one Norwegian Air flight were diverted. One easyJet flight from Edinburgh landed at Birmingham.

Forecasters say snow, heavy rain and more strong winds of up to 60mph-70mph will hit to UK later today.

North western Scotland will bear the brunt of the bad weather, but more wet and windy weather is forecast to come up from the south west. The area around Gatwick could experience more blustery weather this afternoon, say forecasters.
