2 March - Adverse Weather, depots affected

2 March

Weather conditions are continuing to affect deliveries in many areas of the UK today. The Met Office alerts remain in place for almost all of the country and conditions are still incredibly difficult in many areas. Collection and delivery operations will be severely impacted throughout the UK due to these conditions. We are working closely with our UK carriers to monitor the situation and most depots are attempting to deliver what they can but the serious connectivity and access issues in the respective delivery locations will mean that delivery success will be limited due to the conditions.

1 March

We have been advised by our UK carriers that the adverse weather affecting much of the UK is having an effect on deliveries and collections.

This is affecting the below areas in particular.

  1. Norwich
  2. Newcastle
  3. Inverness
  4. Aberdeen
  5. Perth
  6. Linwood
  7. Glasgow
  8. Livingston

As a result deliveries and collections to and from these areas may be delayed to ensure operational safety.

Further adverse weather is forecast over the coming days and we will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you informed.

We will update this page if we receive further advice from our carriers.
