I could no longer land as the airfield had become unlicensed
Presuming that when you checked just prior to flight that the airport was available for you to use, this certainly seems to me to be a silly situation to put you in. If you had flight planned that destination, and in particular were it to be your fuel stop, the airport authority would look pretty silly if you thereafter had a problem related to a diversion caused by their officialdom! Something of a sad commentary on the UK I suppose. I have never heard of anything similar in Canada. The only occasion I have heard of an aerodrome becoming unusable for aircraft enroute, would be in the case of a weather deterioration, or a crash, which obstructs the runway. Other than that, one would hope that some more broad judgement could prevail....
