‘We’re going to be doing things that are a little bit different’
London’s travel advisory has been revised to remove references to the capital’s icy climate, as temperatures climb to 10 degrees below zero.
The advisory has replaced the previous message, which warned of potential dangers from cold weather, with a warning that “it could be a while before you see snow” in the capital.
The change was made in the latest edition of the London Travel Advisory, which was issued on Thursday.
It was previously in the “weather warning” section and also included information on the impact of ice storms, frost and hail.
A spokesman for the travel advisory said: “The London Travel advisory has always been a very useful tool and I have always wanted to take it further.”
I think we have moved in the right direction.
We have had a lot of feedback from people, and I’m sure we are going to do some new things.
“He added that the changes had been “an important step forward for our advice”.
London is now the third-largest city in the UK to reach 10 degrees above zero.
In April, the capital was hit by an ice storm which caused severe disruption to London’s Tube network.
A string of other warnings have been issued in recent months, including the one from the mayor and London Underground bosses that the capital could be in “extreme conditions” on Friday.
