A MAIN road in Warrington has reopened after work was carried out overnight to drain flooding.

Ackers Road in Stockton Heath was closed due to flooding yesterday, Tuesday, following heavy rainfall as Storm Henk hit the north west.

A large section of road was blocked off after becoming waterlogged and a diversion was put in place for motorist using the popular route.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning in the north west, predicting flooding across multiple areas of the region.

Overnight work has been carried out to clear the flooding on Ackers Road and it was open this morning, Wednesday.

Workers from RAM Utility Solutions Ltd used a super water recycling unit, one of the most powerful drainage machines in the country, to pump the flood water and drain it from the road.
