“If possible, stay at home for the duration of the weather warning, only leaving your home if essential, in order to protect yourselves and ease the pressure on Emergency Services

“Please take note the weather warning is clear that there could be a risk to life. The Council has therefore activated its emergency plans and will continue to issue regular updates.”
