CHESHIRE West and Chester Council have highlighted the important work of various teams as the borough looks to recover from the impact of Storm Babet.

The heavy rain from the storm - which hit Cheshire West on Friday, October 20 - saw flooding on the roads with several having to be closed, including the A540, Parkgate Road in Chester.

Images captured by drones and shared by the Council show the submerged road which runs parallel to the Shropshire Union Canal as it nears the city from the north east.

In a post on X, the Council said: "The Council's Highways team along with local farmers @ColasLtd spent 28 hours pumping out water at Parkgate Road. One example of the extensive clear up operation that's been ongoing since Storm Babet reached our borough."

Flooding saw several road affected across Cheshire West over the weekend, with the A55, A494, A5104 and several minor roads throughout the borough experiencing closures.

Merseyrail and Arriva services were also heavily affected, with stations such Hooton experiencing severe flooding and all Arriva services being suspended on Friday due to the adverse conditions.
