HEAVY rain and strong winds are forecast for Worcestershire due to potential remnants of ex-tropical storm Bertha heading over the Atlantic from the Caribbean.

The council will have extra officers on standby to deal with any possible problems and will continue to work closely with agencies to keep informed of any updates.

Additional gangs, plant and equipment, including gulley emptiers, will be available to help minimise any possible disruption across the county. With strong winds forecast, tree contractors are also on standby ready to clear any trees that may fall across the highway.

Drivers are again being advised to take care on the roads if there is heavy rain and surface water accumulates.

Cllr John Smith, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: "We have made arrangements to deal with any problems that might arise and people should keep up to date with weather reports so they can take any appropriate action to ensure their safety over the weekend."
