Heavy Smog Blankets Beijing

Beijing airport has cancelled hundreds of flights after dense smog reduced visibility in the Chinese capital.

Fog across parts of northern China meant motorways had to be closed and many drivers kept their headlights on all day.

In Beijing, the fog was made worse by air pollution, and the US embassy there said particulate levels were “hazardous” on Sunday and Monday.

Weather forecasts suggest the fog will continue until tomorrow.
