Cheshire: Rain causes disruption across the county

September 26, 2012, 12:55 pm

Due to continual heavy rain across the region overnight, parts of Cheshire have been subject to flooding and some of the counties roads have become impassable.

There has been no requirement to evacuate any residents at this stage.

Cheshire Police and other emergency services are working hard to ensure the safety of the local communities and road users, and urge motorists to only embark upon journeys that are absolutely necessary as driving conditions become increasingly difficult.

Motorists are strongly advised to avoid the following areas which have been particularly affected and are subject to local road closures.

  • Middlewich – areas around the Trent & Mersey canal
  • Northwich – town centre around the Bull Ring
  • Winsford – New Road
  • Warrington – Higham Avenue and surrounding areas
  • Little Bollington – Park Lane
  • Dutton (Near Frodsham) – areas surrounding the Trent and Mersey Canal.

Motorists who encounter any serious difficulties are advised to ring 101.

Local residents are asked to check on the welfare of any elderly neighbours or relatives in the areas affected by the localised flooding, and to regularly tune into local radio and television news for important updates.
