FELIXSTOWE: Police have launched Operation Stack due to strong winds hitting the region.

Lorries heading for Felixstowe Port will be held back on the old A45 at Levington until the 45mph gusts die off.

Handling of boxes on the quayside and in the rail yards at Felixstowe Port were also halted because of the bad weather.
