UK's Heathrow airport says most flights operating

LONDON (AP) - Britain's Heathrow airport says most flights are operating as normal, following days of disruption to services caused by the wintry weather.

The airport said on Thursday that it expected only few cancelations or delays. On Wednesday it finally reopened both runways for the first time since Saturday.

Thousands of stranded travelers had slept on terminal floors over the last few days as they waited for news of their flights. 

Motoring organizations said millions of drivers would make Christmas holiday journeys over the next two days, likely snarling roads across the country.

Train operators said they were likely to reduce services in Britain by about 25 percent as a result of the cold conditions.
