Bosses at the airport are urging passengers due to fly today to check with their airline about the status of their flight.

Two outbound flights have been cancelled with airline Flybe this morning - one to Belfast and one to Glasgow - due to the widespread mist.

And flights scheduled to arrive from Aberdeen, Belfast City and Glasgow were also cancelled.

An East Midlands Airport spokesman said: “Like much of the UK, East Midlands Airport has been affected by the fog and low visibility today with some flights experiencing minor delays.

“It looks like the foggy conditions could remain throughout the morning, and we would ask customers to check with their airline about the status of their individual flight.

“Passenger safety remains our number one priority and we will work with our third parties on site to ensure all passengers are cared for during these conditions.”

Fog was also causing delays on roads across the region this morning, as visibility has been reduced to 100m or less in some areas.
