#ports - Plans for vehicle go-slows orchestrated by a north Wales man in protest at the UK Government's handling of Brexit are now expected to take place across the country.

As NorthWalesLive reports, The Brexit Protest and Direct Action Group, which is led by Deeside man Ian Charlesworth, has organised a go-slow protest on the A494 on Friday , March 22.

A second protest at Holyhead Port is also back on the agenda for this Saturday, March 23.

The intention is to cause disruption to Irish wagons heading toward Holyhead Port along the A55 - a main trading route with the EU, which the UK is set to leave on March 29.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
