Yellow Weather Warning Impacts Local Markets
Due to a yellow weather warning issued by the Met Office for strong gusts on Saturday afternoon into the evening, several markets in the area have been affected.
Carol Young of CJ's Events Warwickshire said: 'Our decision is always carefully considered with the safety of our team, traders & visitors being a priority. We never want to cancel markets, but have to look at the risks involved. Cancelling markets not only impacts traders, but also ourselves, as we're a commercial company, so decisions like this aren't take lightly.'
'There are gusts forecasted of up to 39mph, along with heavy rain throughout Thursday, we therefore have no choice but to take this decision in the interests of public safety. No traders will be in attendance.'
