Fog disrupts flights to Scilly

Fog resulted in Skybus having to suspend flights today from Lands End Airport.  A number of tourists due to fly out today have been accommodated in Penzance overnight and are due to sail out on the Scillonian in the morning.   

 There is no BIH helicopter service this week because the helicopter has been assigned to support a Ministry of Defence contract for a two week period.
