The freezing weather has forced Fakenham racecourse to call off one of its most valuable meetings of the year tomorrow (January 15 2017).

Tens of thousands of pounds in prize money would have been on offer at the Norfolk track, but the forecast of another cold night tonight, and the chance of snow tomorrow morning has forced the course to cancel the meeting.
Floods Minister Thérèse Coffey has thanked all the teams who worked together to protect East coast communities from the risk represented by the storm surge.
While the flood forecasting was extremely accurate, we were fortunate that the winds and highest waves did not happen together. “I saw for myself in Essex the tireless work of the military, EA staff, volunteers and emergency services who have worked round the clock to warn and evacuate people, make sure our permanent defences are in good order and temporary defences in place where necessary. “That effort kept 550,000 properties safe from flooding – a stark reminder of the scale and force of those coastal waves and how important it is to check your flood risk and follow EA advice. We know a small number of properties were flooded and my sympathies go out to those who have been affected.”

Police have defended the decision to ask people to leave their homes despite the fact that the storm surge did not cause serious floodingRead the full story ›
