This ^^ .

Due to both the forecast of thunderstorms and their subsequent appearance in reality over e.g. northern France there were various ATC restrictions in place last night effecting flights over both the SE U.K. and parts of neighbouring Europe. It certainly forced airlines other than Ryanair to make tactical cancellations.
