Jubilee celebrations in Warwick district
Residents in Warwick district are gearing up to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee over the June Bank Holiday weekend.
A spokesperson from CJ's Events Warwickshire said: "This decision hasn't been taken lightly, the gusts forecasted have raised a Health & Safety concern for us. We've seen lots of damage across Warwickshire over the past 48 hours with Storm Ciara. Whilst there is no Weather Warning currently in place, the Met Office have forecasted gusts reaching up to 40mph overnight and during tomorrow. This totally exceeds the maximum safety limit for our market stalls.
'We take safety very seriously. We will not put life at risk to our traders, staff or visitors. We know many traders and visitors will be upset by this decision, but hope you can understand safety must take priority. No traders will be attendance at tomorrows market.'
