Further to the below, the high winds have reached the Midlands where Freightliner & Pentalver Cannock are closed as a result.

Manchester railhead & depot are both working intermittently

Felixstowe Port confirmed closed a short while ago.

Please be advised we have a number of depots closed around the UK due to high winds, details as follows:

Manchester – railhead & Maritime depot both closed
Leeds – railhead closed
Liverpool – railhead closed

Teesport quay – closed

Felixstowe quay – has been working however vehicles are now being denied access to the parks & therefore suspect they are either restricted traffic flow pending likely closure or have in fact closed, we are awaiting official notice to confirm from the Port

Forecasts locally suggest we face disruption at the port throughout the rest of the day and into this evening & although winds are expected to ease overnight slightly they are expecting to increase come daylight tomorrow throughout majority of the day.
