Fog is delaying flights in and out of Jersey and Guernsey

More than 40 flights were cancelled in Guernsey on Monday after heavy fog meant they could not take off or land.

The disruption continued on Tuesday but airport director, Colin Le Ray, said he was hopeful conditions would improve.

The Jersey Met Office has said hill fog patches were likely on Tuesday and Wednesday across the Channel Islands but that they would clear.

Mr Le Ray said they had got 26 flights out but only nine back in on Monday which he said was disappointing.

Jersey flights to Southampton and to and from Gatwick were cancelled on Monday due to heavy fog.
