"Yesterday was a very challenging day for everyone in Greater Manchester - including ourselves as police officers, other emergency services and not least the people living and working in Manchester who were caught up in the gale force winds that hit the region."

"While the weather is expected to be better today, I would urge motorists in Manchester to take extra care while driving until the adverse conditions completely subside."
