Services have returned almost to normal after three days of chaos on the Eurostar rail link between the UK and France.
But many parts of Europe continue to face severe transport disruptions and there have been more deaths as a severe cold snap sweeps the continent.
More than 80 people have died across Europe, including 42 in Poland and another 27 in Ukraine who have frozen to death.
Another 13 people died in car accidents in Austria, Finland and Germany, where temperatures dropped well below zero.
Air, rail and road transport has been severely disrupted across northern Europe where as much as 50 centimetres of snow has fallen with more expected in the coming days.
But after three days of cancelled services, Eurostar trains began running again between Brussels, Paris and London: an investigation has been launched into the disruption of services.
More freezing fog was expected at Stansted, north of London, and forecasters from Britain's Met Office also issued severe weather warnings across the country, warning of icy roads and thick snow in eastern Scotland.
Britain's Automobile Association said Monday was their busiest night for 25 years, with about 700 calls received every hour.
In Buckinghamshire, west of London, about 100 people, including 20 children, spent the night in the John Lewis department store after being snowed in.
"There was no way that I was going to throw customers out into that," said store managing director Deborah Strazza.
"Basically we made up the beds and they all snuggled down in the bed department."
