Heathrow responded to Britain’s big freeze by freezing the passengers who were left stranded at the airport after all flights were cancelled, according to eyewitnesses.

Victims of Britain’s coldest December on record were stuck at the airport after Heathrow announced all flights had been cancelled. Flights would remain grounded throughout the whole of Sunday, airport officials later announced, despite the fact that Saturday’s deluge of snow has been replaced by blue skies.

After less than enthusiastic efforts to clear runways (two guys with shovels if the picture above is any indication), passengers who had their flights cancelled were forced to sleep on the airport floor because all trains and taxis from the airport had also been suspended.

Newspaper reports this morning [2]unquestionably regurgitated Heathrow’s PR talking points by reporting that “several hundred people were working to… keep passengers in the terminal as warm and comfortable as possible,” but travelers tell a different story.

According to a passenger whose flight to Moscow was cancelled, airport staff walked around shouting at travelers, telling them to leave immediately. When passengers refused to go after pointing out that they had no means of transportation because all the taxis and trains had been cancelled, Heathrow bosses simply turned off the heating and lights overnight and let hundreds of people, including young children and babies, freeze in temperatures of minus 5 degrees.

Pictures sent to Sky News [5] show people wrapped in thermal blankets, proving the heating was turned off. In addition, as the Telegraph reports [6], “Travellers whose flights were cancelled were told to go home and file lost baggage reports rather than wait for their luggage to be returned from planes.”

Britons have again expressed fury about how a country that once survived 8 months of almost ceaseless bombing at the hands of the Nazis during the second world war is now completely paralyzed by weather that other European countries like Switzerland, Austria and Poland take in their stride on a regular basis, without widespread chaos.
