As rain and high winds are expected across the county, motorists are being encouraged to stay safe by playing it safe.

The main advice is to reduce speed, put lights on, drive carefully and considerately, and avoid making journeys if they aren’t necessary.

The heaviest of the rainfall is anticipated between 3pm and 8pm. Commuters are advised to make their journey earlier or later to avoid the rush hours if at all possible.
