Kidderminster Shuttle: Highways teams out for wet and windy night Highways teams out for wet and windy night

MOTORISTS are being urged to take care on the roads today and over the holiday period after weather warnings for wind and rain were issued by the Met Office for Worcestershire.

Worcestershire County Council Highways staff are responding to any problems caused by the severe weather as required.

All of the maintenance gangs have been redeployed to deal with the effects of the adverse weather - patrol officers are out and about on the county's roads, gully emptiers are dealing with issues as required and tree contractors are dealing with any fallen trees from high winds.

Peter Blake, the county council's head of integrated transport, said: "We're responding to any problems as they arise from the forecasted heavy rainfall and high winds. We'll be constantly monitoring the situation on our roads – with officers and contractors ready to work this evening and through the night if necessary.

"We'd echo the advice to drivers being sent out by our partners. Please take care on the roads and stay safe."
