You will have seen the weather forecast about the next storm which is due to hit the UK in the next 12 hours. There is now a red/amber warning about the strength of the wind.

Here are some simple steps you can take now to keep your home and yourself/your family safe.

  • Secure garden furniture, play equipment, flower pots and trampolines. If you can store in a shed or bring inside, this is the safest option. Otherwise, do what you can to weight them down.
  • Secure any outdoor animal cages/pens.
  • Secure wheelie bins as much as possible. Move them away from open spaces or the pavement to stop them from being blown over or into a road which could cause an accident.
  • Clear any tree branches from your garden/lawn or shared outdoor space which could be blown around.
  • Stay in doors and avoid driving if at all possible during the worst of the storm.
