A Falkirk cabbie completed a mammoth journey all the way to London's Heathrow Airport after a connecting flight between Glasgow Airport and the UK's busiest airport was cancelled.

A spokesperson for the cab firm who ran the gauntlet said: "Elite Central Travel were meant to be taking customers to Glasgow Airport this morning for their connecting flight to London before they headed of on a Caribbean Cruise.

"Unfortunately at 9pm last night British Airways cancelled their flight to London. After an hour or so of trying to help them get another flight and to no avail we all agreed the only option was to take the customers to London Heathrow or they would lose their holiday.

"With some treacherous weather on the way down we eventually arrived at Heathrow.

"Elite Central Travel take great pride in looking after our customers, maybe British Airways could learn a thing or 2 from us. Have a great time folks and we will see you back at Glasgow airport in 2 weeks."

The round trip for the driver was around a whopping 800 miles, tackling rain and heavy crosswinds caused by storm Eunice.
