Almost 100 flights into and out of Heathrow Airport were cancelled yesterday due to heavy fog.

What is more disappointing for me on reading this article from the BBC is to hear of the long queues at passport control.  The report follows recent news about the UK Border Agency relaxing controls and concerns over whether the Agency will be able to cope with the influx of passengers during next year's Olympics.

Heavy fog is certainly beyond our control but long queues are not.  Our airports need to do something to ease the pain of the very necessary airport formalities we face on arrival in the UK.
