BRITAIN'S biggest port is expecting disruption to its operations with windy weather on the way.
Bosses at Felixstowe say wind speeds could exceed 50mph on the ground - high-rise quayside cranes cannot work when gusts hit 45mph.
“There is a high probability of some disruption to rail and yard operations as a result of these adverse weather conditions,” said a port spokesman.
