Heavy rain and strong winds are forecast across the region and, with rain falling on already sodden ground as a result of last weekend’s storm there is a strong likelihood of sudden flooding.

Northern customers are being asked to check before travelling and to allow extra time for journeys this weekend.

Flooding is, once again, forecast on the Calder Valley and Northern is calling on customers not to travel on the route between 5pm on Saturday and 10am on Sunday.
