IRISH TRAVELLERS HAVE been hit by the storm that is hitting England and Wales.

Aer Lingus has been forced to cancel a number of flights to Cardiff, London, Belfast and Bristol as Storm St Jude continues to sweep across Britain.

The airline apologised for the disruption and said that passengers would be accommodated on later flights.

“Customers who are affected by these cancellations will be accommodated on the next available flights. Customers are requested to visit aerlingus.com in order to change their booking or request a refund.

“Aer Lingus apologises sincerely for this schedule disruption, which is due to factors beyond its control,” said a statement.

The flight cancellations come after yesterday’s disruption to ferry crossings.

Even if passengers are unaffected getting to Britain, the stormy weather is affecting internal travel.

South West Trains have advised people not to travel until at least 8am today and has reduced services, with many trains limited in the speed they can travel.
