Met office raises warning level to Amber for Crawley as Storm Dennis approaches



Storm Dennis is making its way across the Atlantic very quickly and with the news earlier in the week that the storm was due to hit the area at the weekend it meant a second weekend of wind and rain problems.

“Ironically my parliamentary system has had to be shut down due to a malware virus. As you will appreciate during this CV19 period I’m handling hundreds of cases in remote circumstances already. This just got more challenging, so please factor in if contacting me for assistance.”
