HEAVY rain has forced a pet business to shut all of its secure dog fields.

The Dog Paddocks has had to close all six of sites in the north west.

This decision comes as Storm Henk is set to bring yet more heavy rainfall to the area.

"Due to adverse wet and slippery conditions on the ground we have now temporarily closed all fields from Wednesday January 3 up to and including Friday January 5.

"We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this but we thought this was the best thing to do for customer safety and also to protect our fields."

The Dog Paddocks operate fields in Middlewich, Adlington, Lower Whitley, Longdendale and Market Drayton.

They also have a field in Romiley, which was already closed and will continue to be until Tuesday, January 9.

Anyone who was booked in during the closures will be sent a text asking them to reschedule.

Alternatively, you can reschedule online at www.thedogspaddocks.co.uk.
