Trains, flights, ferries cancelled as Storm Ciara batters UK

LONDON (AP) — Trains, flights and ferries have been cancelled and weather warnings issued across the United Kingdom as a storm with hurricane-force winds up to 129 kph batters the region.

At least 10 rail companies in Britain have sent out “do not travel” warnings, and nearly 20 others have told passengers to expect delays as strong winds yesterday are expected to damage electrical wires and clutter train tracks with broken tree limbs and other debris.

London’s Heathrow Airport and several airlines decided to consolidate flights yesterday to reduce the number that would be cancelled by heavy winds.
