You can keep up to date with the latest weather information on the Met Office website (opens new window) .

We will respond to calls on a priority basis, and in conjunction with the emergency services, so we can address issues as soon as possible.

We are still clearing trees from previous storms (those in a safe condition and location) and these will continue to be prioritised, once all urgent and hazardous requests have been handled.

Our gritting crews will be out 24/7, as necessary, to respond to snow and icy conditions. Keep up to date with the latest winter weather advice.

Tips for staying safe

  • Secure all loose objects outside, including your bins, to ensure they can't be blown over or blown into windows or doors.
  • Close and secure all windows and doors.
  • Park vehicles in a garage, wherever possible.
  • Stay indoors as much as possible but if you must make a journey allow plenty of time and check local traffic or public transport updates. Take particular care if driving on exposed routes, for example bridges, and find an alternative if possible.
  • Do not try to repair any damage during the storm.
  • Check on vulnerable relatives and neighbours to make sure they are safe and if they need any help.
  • If your bin is due to be collected please return and secure it as soon as possible after collection.
