St Jude's Day storm: Weather halts conference on how to cope with… the weather


The St Jude storm disrupted a Commons meeting set to hear evidence of how transport copes with bad weather.

Due to the knock-on effect of the winds, the House of Commons Transport Committee amended its hearing on transport’s winter-resilience plans. A spokeswoman said: “Arrangements for the Transport Committee’s first evidence session on transport’s winter resilience have been revised because of transport disruption caused by today’s storm.”
