Road closures have been the most significant disruption to the transport infrastructure in Sheffield up to now, with the A628 Woodhead Pass closed to high sided traffic. The M1 was also closed to high sided traffic over the Tinsley Viaduct, but wind speeds have now lowered to a safe level.

Now, Stagecoach Supertram have issued a disruption warning to their service network. The tram service has said all routes are facing heavy delays due to the "adverse weather conditions" and short notice cancellations are a real possibility.

Earlier today, National Highways shared a list of vehicles said to be "vulnerable" to the high speeds. This included double decker buses; HGVs; vans; motorhomes and motorbikes.

This page will be updated if further disruption is announced.
