You will recall that last week we advised of an amber weather warning, downgraded to yellow for the remainder of the week.

A number of areas on the Sandstone Ridge required emergency services to be scrambled; notably Tarporley, Tattenhall, Malpas, Kelsall, Bickerton and Beeston.

The quite dramatic thunderstorms, accompanying lightning and torrential rain have left their mark on the landscape, not least in and around the Bickerton Hill area.

Thanks to all of you who have been sending us photographs of some of the quite remarkable slippage and surface damage that has taken place.

As we suggested last week, if you are out and about on The Ridge then it is absolutely vital that you stay alert, particularly since yet more rain is forecast this coming week.

These photographs are a reminder to us all to be cautious and prepared.

For information:

  • An amber weather warning lets you know that severe weather is likely and that there's a possibility of travel delays and disruptions, and potential risk to life and property. You should consider cancelling or rearranging travel plans, and taking any necessary steps to minimise the impact of severe weather.
  • A yellow weather warning is one down from amber. It means the weather is likely to have some impact, for example travel disruption.

Stay safe everyone.
