BOSSES at Britain's biggest port today warned truckers of possible delays over the next two days because of the weather.

Forecasts of strong winds could affect quayside crane operations at Felixstowe - with the probability of implementing Operation Stack “moderate to high”.

The winds are expected to last from today to midday on Thursday.

“Based on this information it would appear that the wind may at times be above the safe working limits for park operations, with intermittent stoppages highly likely,” said a port spokesman.

If the port is closed, lorries will be directed to queue on the old A45 road at Levington parallel to the A14.
