Flights from a Greek Island to the UK have been cancelled as rainstorms and widespread flooding from Storm Daniel is battering the resort island of Skiathos.

Record rainfall has caused at least one death and police have banned traffic on the island as flooding has swept cars away in the streets, which comes as streams are overflowing their banks.

Jet2 has announced that all flights that were due to depart the resort island of Skiathos on Wednesday have been cancelled as a result of Storm Daniel.

Four flights were cancelled on Wednesday and Jet2 are monitoring the weather forecast and will confirm new departure times when safe to do so.

In a statement on its website, Jet2 said, “We are sorry to inform you that due to the current and forecasted weather affecting the Island of Skiathos, we have delayed your flight.

“The heavy rainfall and thunderstorms are continuing to effect Skiathos, this is part of an adverse weather phenomenon named Storm Daniel.

“We are monitoring the forecast and will confirm your new departure time as soon as the forecast allows.

“We understand how frustrating this situation is, but please be assured that our dedicated UK-based Operations Team are working tirelessly to ensure we get you back to the UK, when it is safe to do so.

“We know that this is not the news you would like to hear, however, the safety and well-being of all our customers and crew is paramount. Whilst in destination, please continue to follow the advice of the Local Authority.”
