High wind blow down the old ice cream factory in Underwood Lane. On Nantwich road the Royal Hotel stop the traffic as a sign comes loose just some of the devastation that took part in todays high winds

A spokesman for Cheshire East Council said: “Crewe’s indoor market was closed today to protect the safety of traders and the public because of the risk posed by the high winds.

“Two short wooden boards from scaffolding on the roof of the adjoining Municipal Buildings blew off onto the roof of the market this morning shortly before 11am.

“No one was hurt and the roof was not damaged. However, a decision was quickly taken to close the market on the grounds of safety to traders and the public. The market will remain closed until this risk has been removed and the wind has died down sufficiently.

“Four workers from subcontractors responsible for the scaffolding are currently on site ensuring all scaffolding is secure. They will remain there to monitor and maintain safety throughout the day.

“Council staff are also on hand to explain the situation to the public and keep them away from the market.”
