Cheshire East Council update on flooding

The Trent and Mersey Canal at Croxton Lane, Middlewich. The risk of collapse is now receding and we do not believe housing is currently under threat.

Moss Lane/Flowers Lane/Bradfield Green. Sandbags have been deployed and we are currently pumping 25,000 litres of water an hour.

I would like to update the people of Cheshire East that, amid the unprecedented rainfall, this is the most up to date information we have:

We have currently got 12 roads closed. We have deployed some 500 sandbags across the Borough.
