Quoting CV580Freak (Reply 3): The fog must be bad as 99% of flights ex LPL after 18.00 have been cancelled.
Due to severe fog and restricted visibility at Liverpool airport a number of departures and arrivals have been cancelled this morning. As a result of ongoing weather conditions (fog) at Liverpool Airport, this has resulted in the cancellation of Ryanair's schedule for today.
The latest weather forecast for tomorrow is predicting a continuation of these foggy conditions. Consequently it is likely that some of tomorrows early morning flights will be cancelled.

I'm only 15 miles as the crow flies from Blackpool Airport and the visibility here is under 100m as I type. Its bad enough driving let alone flying at the moment. Lets hope they are found alive and well but it doesn't sound promising.
