    Lancashire County Council is fully prepared to keep the county moving and respond to any impacts as a result of Storm Ciara this weekend.

    The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for high winds from midday on Saturday throughout Sunday, and a yellow warning for heavy rain from the early hours of Sunday through to 9pm.

    The storm brings the potential for disruption to travel as a result of debris and surface water flooding on roads.

    The county council's highway teams are on standby to deal with whatever the weather brings, whether there's a need to remove downed trees, or minimise the impact of floods by diverting traffic and removing storm debris from drains.

    External contractors are also available to be called upon to add to the council's manpower should they be needed.

    People should report any problems on the roads caused by the storm which do not require an emergency response to local police by calling 101, so they can pass any issues onto highway teams as necessary.

    County Councillor Keith Iddon, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "We're well prepared for whatever Storm Ciara brings this weekend, ensuring our highway teams are ready to deal with incidents such as blocked roads, as well as any other urgent repairs and maintenance that may be needed.

    "I would remind everyone to check the advice issued by the Met Office, and consider whether their plans may be affected. You can also find advice on our website about what to do before, during, and after a flood.

    "I'd also ask people to check on any vulnerable friends and relatives who may struggle to get out and about when the weather is bad. Rogue traders also often target vulnerable people in the days following a storm by cold calling and offering to carry out unnecessary, overpriced, and shoddy repairs. You can find reputable tradespeople by using our Safe Trader Scheme."
