Cllr Helen Fisher, cabinet member for highways and transport at the council, said: “High winds have been forecast across the county this evening and overnight and so we’re reminding people to take extra care if they’re out on the roads.

“Our highways teams will be ready to respond to any issues throughout the night and into the morning but motorists should drive with caution, and be aware of potential fallen branches and debris on the roads.

“Drivers should also be aware of surface flooding and our advice as always is not to drive through any flooded parts of the road as you don’t know how deep the water could be.”

People can report any issues such as fallen trees or flooding on the roads by calling 0300 111 8000 or visiting www.staffordshire.gov.uk.
