Stormy weather 04
Super Sucker

Strong winds and heavy rain predicted for Monday (28th October) could cause disruption across Wales and southern England, according to forecasters.

The Met Office issued an amber alert for wind and there is also concern that heavy rain could cause flooding.

It warned people to "be prepared for the risk of falling trees as well as damage to buildings and other structures" caused by strong winds.

Transport for Buckinghamshire's emergency crews are standing by should they be required on Monday to respond to storm disruption.

TfB inform us that four three-man crews, two for the north of the county and two for the south, will be under the control of the transport hub and armed with the necessary equipment if they are called upon.

In addition the two gully emptying machines and the 'Super Sucker' (... as illustrated, perhaps? Ed.) are being made available.

The transport hub will be maintaining an incident report log, and tracking all callouts from start to finish. The hub has traffic cameras on strategic routes so the team are well equipped to get the crews to their destination in the fastest possible response time.

Sean Rooney, the County's Senior Manager for Place service said: "We obviously hope that our emergency response crews will not be needed and the predicted storms are not severe, but if they are required they will be on hand to tackle any issues caused by the storms, including flooding and fallen trees."

To report an emergency on the roads please call 0845 2302882.
