Covering the chaos at Heathrow on this evening’s Channel 4 news, Jon Snow has appealed for passengers inside the airport to send footage and pix to the programme.

Accredited journalists have been banned from filming inside the airport, which is owned by private operator BAA. Snow described the decision as a ‘deliberate policy’ to prevent showing the public the ‘agony’ of passengers.
