Important Travel information for supporters attending the Britannia Stadium this weekend.

Supporters travelling by road to Stoke on Sunday may want to take note of an organized fuel protest which could lead to delays if using the M6.

‘A huge ‘go-slow' protest over the cost of fuel is set to bring motorway traffic to a halt across Greater Manchester.

Up to 1,000 vehicles will be involved in the protest on Sunday, May 8, say organisers. Police have been informed and officers are set to patrol the demonstration.

Three separate convoys will join up then travel to the Stanlow oil refiner at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire. Protesters have vowed to blockade delivery vehicles once there.

In Greater Manchester, vehicles are due to gather at Birch services on the M62 at around 12.30pm.

From there, the convoy will travel to the M56 and on to the M6 before joining up with vehicles travelling from Liverpool. A third group is set to leave North Wales. All three convoys will then travel on to the refinery'.

An alternative route would be to use the M1, leave the M1 at junction 24 taking the A50 to Stoke.
