    Thanks for that Express1, the strong winds have caused the cancellation of all flights and ferry crossings to the Isle of Man.

    There have been lots of other cancellations:

    just to update you on the above flights. it was nothing to do with the weather but an emergency which a few of us where witnessing. TOM092 squawk 7700 from Gatwick to Cancum B767 was holding around EMA before deciding to carry on to Manchester. the report on the BBC link seems to be wrong as it was posted as the drama was happening. anymore info on this would be appreciated
    thx.......Marty
