STORM Ciaran is set to arrive in Cheshire.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning covering large parts of the county as heavy rain is expected.

The storm, the second in as many weeks, is expected to bring some disruption with possible flooding and even a danger to life.

Currently the warning, which comes into effect from 6pm, stretches to just south of Winsford, with neighbouring Sandbach, Crewe and Chester all in the thick of it.

The Met Office has said to expect delays or cancellations to bus and train services, as well as flooded roads.

Homes and businesses may also be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

Fast flowing or deep floodwater is also possible, the Met Office has warned, posing a danger to life.

This is expected to continue until around midnight tomorrow.

Ciaran comes just two weeks after Storm Babet left parts of Mid Cheshire underwater, with several people having to be rescued from their homes and cars, while many businesses were forced to temporarily close as a result.
