CLOSURES remain in place on the A41 with flood waters continuing to make some sections of the road impassable.

The A41 is still closed from Broxton Roundabout, with roads still flooded at Milton Green, meanwhile Highways England is reporting that the A41 between Prees Heath roundabout and Tern Hill remains closed.

Residents are also reminded not to drive or walk through any flood water – this is often deeper than it looks, it may be moving fast and there could be hidden hazards underneath such as raised manhole covers, which can pose a danger.

Superintendent Julie Westgate from Cheshire Constabulary said: "We're continuing to work closely with our partners to monitor the situation and deal with any flooding related issues across the county.

"All agencies are committed to working together to provide a co-ordinated response in very difficult and often hazardous circumstances in order to keep people safe.

"I want to reassure local residents that collectively we are doing everything we can to minimise the impact on the local community.

"While the heavy rain has stopped and flood waters are subsiding, a number of flood alerts and road closures remain in place and we are urging people to be aware of these and to only travel if it is absolutely essential.

"If you do need to go out please take extra care and allow more time for this as there is a risk of surface water flooding and weather-related debris in places."
