London's Heathrow cancels 60 flights due to fog
LONDON (Reuters) - London's Heathrow airport said on Wednesday it had cancelled 60 flights due to heavy fog, causing delays at Europe's busiest hub.
"There is poor visibility so the number of flights that are landing and taking off at the airport have been reduced as a precaution," a spokesman for Heathrow said. "The problem is expected to ease later this morning".
The problem is exacerbated because Ferrovial's (FER.MC) Heathrow is operating at close to full capacity, the spokesman added. Britain's coalition government blocked the airport's expansion in 2010.
