British Airways cancelled more than 80 flights at London Heathrow and City airports, motorists were warned only to make essential journeys and major attractions closed including the London Eye, Kew Gardens and Legoland. 

On the Southeastern rail network, passengers were stranded on a train between Tonbridge and Sevenoaks in Kent.
