Heathrow’s northern runway re-opened Friday after being shut down briefly for de-icing and snow clearing. Some 180 flights were cancelled by midday. Rail traffic was disrupted and roads were forced to close amid plunging temperatures and icy conditions. (AP Photo/Steve Parsons/PA) UNITED KINGDOM OUT
