Can I use a standard tourist visa as a transit visa for UK/Schengen areas?

I am traveling to Poland and most of my flight options pass via London, or other Schengen countries. I will have a UK visa since my next destination is Birmingham. I won’t be leaving the airport area in the layovers. Do I require a transit visa in this scenario?

Answer

You don’t need a UK transit visa if you already hold a valid UK visitor visa.
