Airlines have been forced to cancel or delay numerous flights to and from airports in the north-east of England and Scotland today due to storm Otto.

One of the worst affected airports is Leeds Bradford, where several flights are grounded this morning.

Wizz Air has cancelled a number of flights from the northeast airport and several Jet2 departures are among those that have been delayed due high winds battering the north-east.

Storm Otto is expected to bring gusts of wind up to 75mph throughout the day.

Scottish carrier Loganair says its plans to run all its flights but ‘given the potential for disruption’ it is giving customers travelling to or from Scotland or the north-east of England the option to delay their trips.

They can choose to re-book on an alternative flight up to seven days from their original travel date with no change fee or difference in fare payable.

Loganair added: “We plan to fly all our scheduled services. We have standby aircraft and crews in place to help recover any disrupted services as soon as possible once weather conditions permit.

“Please note that unless your flight is cancelled, no refund will be offered for any operating service.”
