Manchester airport saw arriving flights diverted
Manchester Airport suffered major disruption today, with arriving flights diverted to London Heathrow, Stansted, Birmingham, East Midlands, Newcastle and Dublin airports because they were unable to land in the North West.
National Rail has warned anyone making essential journeys once services resume today to expect ‘major disruption’ to routes ‘across most of Great Britain’ – including cancellations, delays and slower speeds onboard.
National Rail said there will be a reduced timetable for today, alternative travel unavailable and further disruption expected.
This morning, Transport for London said the London Overground was suspended between Stratford and Richmond, Stratford and Clapham Junction, Romford and Upminster, and Sydenham and West Croydon due to storm-related damage.
