Britain's biggest container port is struggling to cope with the volume of cargo passing through it with just 10 weeks to go until Christmas. It’s peak season at Port of Felixstowe and the site has become severely congested, due in part to a shortage of HGV drivers. The port’s management is taking action to improve the flow of traffic but is considering turning vessels away unless the situation improves. Already IKEA, Nestle and General Foods (which owns food groups including Hagen Dazs, Old Al Paso and Green Giant) have been impacted. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
