Food delivery services in many parts of the UK have been put on pause due to Storm Eunice.

Deliveroo has now cancelled its services in London, the South East and areas of the South West to keep riders safe as the country battles Storm Eunice which is set to bring gusts of up to 100mph. The Met Office has issued a rare red weather warning.

A note on the Deliveroo app reads: “We’ll be back delivering again when is safe to do so.

“In the interest of keeping riders safe, our service is not available at the moment due to a red weather warning.

“We’ll be available again as soon as it’s safe to do so.”

A Deliveroo spokesperson said: ‘In the interest of keeping riders safe, Deliveroo’s service is not available in London and the South East or Wales, and areas of the South West, at the moment due to the red weather warning and adverse conditions.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and remain in close contact with our partners and riders to let them know when we plan to reopen these areas.”

The Uber Eats app says: “Uber Eats is currently unavailable in your area due to bad weather. For courier safety.”
