Air passengers faced a second day of disruption as dozens more flights were cancelled because of thick fog blanketing a huge swathe of Britain.

Motorists were advised to take extra care on the UK's roads on Monday, when many schools returned from the half-term break, amid hazardous driving conditions and poor visibility.

A Met Office yellow weather warning for fog, covering much of England and east Wales, was in force until midday.

After long delays on Sunday, some delayed passengers landed at Heathrow - Britain's busiest airport - in the early hours of the morning.

But many hoping to take off on Monday were disappointed as around 45 flights - or 10 per cent of departures - from Heathrow were "pre-cancelled".

London City Airport reported that a "considerable number" of flights have been cancelled, while Gatwick also cancelled flights due to poor visibility caused by the fog.

Flights from other UK airports to the capital and some European cities were also disrupted by the fog, which was delaying flights by up to three hours at Birmingham Airport.

Flights continued to be disrupted at both Manchester Airport and Liverpool John Lennon Airport, with several services cancelled to and from Amsterdam, the Isle of Man, Southampton and Edinburgh.

A Heathrow Airport spokeswoman said: "We've got extra passenger ambassadors in the terminals to provide assistance for those travelling today.

"Once again we would like to apologise for the disruption."

Passengers were being advised to check the status of their flight with the airline before travelling to the airport.

Some passengers took to Twitter to tell of their relief on reaching London after delays on Sunday, which also saw around 50 flights cancelled at Heathrow.

The Met Office weather warning for fog is valid until midday, with fog expected to slowly clear throughout the morning.

The forecaster said the fog would become widespread and dense overnight into Monday and warned: "Travel may be impacted by poor visibility, with some minor disruption expected."

Forecasters warned that visibility could be reduced to less than 100 yards, bringing difficult driving conditions.

Jack Lewis of West Midlands Ambulance Service tweeted:

And Highways England urged people to allow extra time.

The agency said on its website: "Road users will need plenty of extra time to do their usual commute, especially as the fog is expected to lift very slowly during the morning."

Sky News presenter Eamonn Holmes was among those stranded by the fog.

He was unable to make it to London in time for the Sunrise television news programme at 6am.

He tweeted about his travel predicament on Sunday:

And then on Monday, he posted an update after early flights to Manchester, London City and Heathrow airports were cancelled from Belfast City Airport.

However, despite the disruption from fog, Britain saw its warmest November weather on record on Sunday after temperatures hit 22.4C in Wales.

The high was recorded at Trawsgoed in west Wales at around 2pm, the Met Office said, breaking the previous November record of 21.7C, set on November 4, 1946 at Prestatyn.

Meteorologist Nicola Willis said: "Southerly winds brought warm air in from the continent and the settled conditions resulted in sunshine to that part of Wales."

The southerly winds and high pressure would mean unusually warm weather continuing across Britain for much of this week.
