News / Sun 21st Jan 2024 at 03:43pm
AMBER and yellow warnings have been issued across the UK from this evening (21 January) until 6am on Monday, 22 January ahead of Storm Isha.
This could affect our road networks and could lead to damaged buildings due to very strong winds.
We ask the public to be careful, especially when driving.
Chief Superintendent Stuart Weaver said “Last time we had an amber weather warning in Essex, our Contact Management Centre received a large amount of calls.
“We have prepared for this, but we ask the public to only call 999 in an emergency and to consider which service your call requires,
“This consideration allows our officers to be free to attend emergencies, help vulnerable people and continue catching criminals.
