Cancelled flights & travel chaos as Arctic blast covers Europe

Chaos culminated in Europe’s roads & airports after an Arctic blast disrupted multiple ways of travel over the weekend.

The UK in particular was brought to a standstill as Gatwick and Stansted Airports were forced to close their runways due to heavy snow while commuters were stranded in traffic on the M25 motorway.

Several weather warnings have been issued across Europe, with temperatures in Scandinavia expected to drop as low as -23 Celsius.

The weather situation was caused by low pressure over the Atlantic and western Europe, with the Arctic blast spreading from the north to south and gradually spreading over the rest of Europe, making it the coldest Winter season so far.

In Malta, weather is forecasted to remain mainly cloudy until Wednesday, with temperature highs of 21°C and lows of 15°C.

A post shared by Cristiano Ronaldo (@cristiano)

“Winning a World Cup for Portugal was the biggest and most ambitious dream of my career,” the Portuguese superstar wrote to his 513 million followers. He went on to write that in his 5 World Cup appearances over 16 years, he always gave his all and left it all out on the field, never turned his face to the fight and never gave up.

“sadly yesterday the dream ended It’s not worth reacting to heat.”

Ronaldo was seen leaving the field in tears after Portugal’s loss to Morocco, with the loss being especially sombre for the fact he entered the match as a substitute.

“Thank you Portugal. Thank you Qatar The dream was nice while it lasted… Now, it’s hoping that the weather will be good advisor and allow each one to draw their own conclusions.”
