      For this weekend's SouthWest Overload event, in order to manage the increased workload and interest in controlling the West sector group, a temporary arrangement is made to allow for the split of the London West sector between the dates specified above:
      LON_W_CTR (AC West)
      West may be split into 2 positions: AC West (126.075) and AC Brecon (133.600). AC West remains the parent sector under the rules determining opening order and controller priority.

      AC West
      (Callsign “London Control”, Login: LON_W_CTR) is responsible for airspace South of a line passing approximately EVRIN-EXMOR-BDN VOR as shown above. Their top-down responsibilities reflect the airspace of this sector (i.e. Channel Islands, Newquay and Exeter) in the absence of other controllers.
      AC Brecon
      (Callsign “London Control”, Login: LON_WN_CTR) is responsible for airspace North of a line passing approximately EVRIN-EXMOR-BDN VOR as shown above. Their top-down responsibilties reflect their airspace (i.e. Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucestershire, Kemble) in the absence of other controllers.
       
      This procedure does not alter the staffing permissions as defined in the UK Division Policy or GRP.
      Chris.

      A number of frequencies are updated at Hawarden
      Hawarden Tower 124.950 becomes 124.955 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
      Hawarden ATIS 125.425 becomes 125.430 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
      Hawarden Approach 123.350 becomes 120.055 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the next nearest frequency is used - 120.07
       
      We will update documentation at a future point to cover these changes, as well as update the UK Sector File and UK Controller Pack.

      Runway 12/30 has been withdrawn from use. The approach procedures and SIDs pertaining to this runway have been removed.
       
      Some documentation still refers to this runway, but this will shortly be updated to reflect the current situation.

      Jersey (EGJJ) VRPs are updated; during protected CAT I operations (during LVPs), taxiway echo may not be used as a runway exit.
       
      In an upcoming release, the Jersey vMATS and Crib Sheet will be updated.

      A number of frequencies are updated at Newcastle
      Newcastle Tower 119.700 becomes 119.705 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
      Newcastle Ground 121.725 becomes 121.730 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
      Newcastle ATIS 118.370 becomes 118.380 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
      Newcastle Approach 124.375 becomes 124.380 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
      Newcastle Director 125.825 becomes 125.830 due to 8.33 kHz spacing restrictions, we are unable to replicate this. Therefore the existing frequency is retained as it is the closest usable frequency.
       
      We will update documentation at a future point to detail the reasons why these frequencies do not match. There is no operational impact.
