The CGOM library, which deals with all the MPI messages for the UM, used by default by UM version 4.5 has quite small buffer sizes if you are not using the standrad resolutions. There existsa version of GCOM with bigger buffer sizes which is simple accessed by using a compiler override file.

On HPCx you need to create a file in say your $HOME space with the following instructions

@load LCOM_PATH=-L. -L$(UMDIR)/gcom/um5.5/lib -L$(UMDIR)/lib
@load LCOM_LIBS=-lgcom_mpi_buffered_bigbuff -lvect -lmass_9.1 -lmassv

Then you need to use this compile override file in the UMUI. Go to
submodel independent → compilation and modifications → user defined compile option overrides
Click on include the following user compile overrides
Put in the fiull path of the file you have created on HPCx
Make sure that you say Y to include the file

Then recompile your model code and you should now have the bigger buffered GCOM library that will cure your problems.
