MOTORISTS have been urged to avoid the A56 Stockport Road junction with Warrington Road, Lymm after it flooded.

Heavy rain this afternoon, Tuesday, has meant the road is not 'suitable' for most cars.

A Warrington Police spokesman said: "Please avoid the area if possible and find an alternative route, it is not suitable for most vehicles (unless you’re in a hovercraft, you should be fine). 

"Please take care whilst driving in this weather."
