British boyband Blue were left stranded in London on Sunday (20Jan13) when their planned flight to Germany was cancelled due to heavy snowfall. The All Rise hitmakers were due to travel to Hamburg but their plane from London's Heathrow Airport was grounded amid blizzard-like conditions in the U.K. The group looked into boarding a Eurostar train instead, but the service was also halted because of the heavy snow. In a post on his Twitter.com page, singer Duncan James writes, "Flights been cancelled and now Eurostar also cancelled! Why in london when we get snow the city shuts down???" Bandmate Simon Webbe added on Monday (21Jan13), "I'm so gutted we couldn't go to Hamburg yesterday can't wait to get the news when we can fly to Germany." Heavy snow has caused numerous flight cancellations across Europe in recent days - other stars to suffer in the travel chaos include singer Katie Melua, Irish band The Script, and former Culture Club frontman Boy George.
