Flood warnings issued for Warrington

Warrington Guardian: Flooding in Hawleys Lane last year Flooding in Hawleys Lane last year

FLOOD warnings have been put in place for parts of Warrington.

The Environment Agency has put in the warning for Chester Road between Brian Bevan Island and Arpley Railway Bridge and Arpley Road.

Council officers say sandbags have been deployed to known locations including the Ferry Tavern in Penketh - which was hit badly by flooding last month.

And the council says sandbags are also ready to be deployed as required for any overnight requests or issues that may arise later on this evening.

Given that some of these locations come up in warnings every year, maybe they were more in need of flood defenses than where they stuck them!

why not sand bag the river's where it is expected to flood?

no, sorry, that would be a sensible thing to do.

It appears that some people seem to think it is a laughing matter that others have the misfortune to be flooded , I can assure it is no laughing matter when your home/business is at risk in this situation

I hope no one has the misfortune to flood tomorrow, definitely no laughing matter or something that should be joked about. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen.

Something similar to what the council did in Westbrook to stop the Gypsies parking on the grass verges would probably work (without ruining the landscape too).

actually if you look the council did just that, for the ferry some time ago, they build a berm along the river just like what they use to stop travellers from getting onto land. the only problem is they only built it so far along. so the water just comes in from a different direction now and the ferry still gets flooded.

The council never built it and it no longer comes around the end. A lot of people on here are making statements that just aren't true.

Good job ex PC Plonka has a lot of friends in the community... If you he didn't he'd have to sit in on a Thursday night reading the Warrington Guardian website for articles he could make comment on.
It appears that people have nothing better to do than make completely inappropriate comments about a community and family pub that they know nothing about whatsoever!

The friends and loyal customers of the pub are more than happy to help a landlord and lady that go out of their way to make ALL they're customers feel very welcome. Therefore, it is only fitting that these kind hearted people feel the need that they should help out a family that requires their assistance!

I hope the 'trolls' on here never have the misfortune of being a situation such as this!

Some people on here actually make me laugh... Can see the guardian feel the same as some posts have been removed since yesterday. Trolls.

'Ex PC Plonker', to my knowledge, hasn't needed to ask the local community for help - like Penketh91 above has said, they have offered their help because they give a cr*p about their local community, and want to offer their help to get a pub which is enjoyed by many on a weekly basis get back on track.. And actually, taking a step back and looking at this - I think people need to remember that this is a family's life going underwater... Their business, and home.... What would some of you trolls do if your bridge flooded?

""Who’s that trotting over my bridge?" growled the troll from under the planks."

GRUMPY PARENT, what would you do if your business or home went under water? By the sounds of your attitude, you seem to be an idiot, so you probably wouldn't have any friends, family or customers to help you.

MAD 4 IT, the banks have been built up in the past. I expect there's also the added consideration around what they can/can't do, as the banks are not always fully owned by the land owners. As for getting a canoe or serving on a barge.. Great idea...

MOSSEYHIDE - sand bag the river? What, on top of the bank? How long do you think that would last before the pressure would simply wash them away?

I'm sure The Ferry Tavern will once again bounce back.. I for one can't wait until it does, and I'm crossing all fingers that they escape flooding over the next few days tides. I'm already missing my house doubles!

it's not ALL about the Ferry Tavern!, there are other places in Warrington that flood!, what about the rivers that are used as an over flow for the Mersey in the South of Warrington?, Last time we were hit by a bad flood, houses were flooded peoples belongings damaged and some areas were close to being cut off, hence Hawley's Lane Bridge and Longshaw Street, if it had got any worse people would have had to send for the RNLI for food supplies (humour is best used in stressful circumstances).....t
here is only 1 convenience store in that area. just pointing out, not being horrible to The Tavern, as I too was shocked by the damaged caused last time.
