Heavy rain has caused flooding and disruption to parts of Greater Manchester.

Motorists were left stranded in cars in Bury and Oldham while roads in Mossley were swamped by the deluge running off the Pennine hills.

Fire crews have been called to six flooding-related incidents in Bury, Stockport, Oldham, Trafford and Tameside.

There are no reports of any injuries or damage to property.

River levels are forecast to reach their highest levels on Monday evening, the Environment Agency said.




There are yellow "be prepared" flood warnings in place for areas near the River Mersey including Bramhall, Stockport, Sale, Altrincham and Urmston.

Probably caused by Trump and Brexit, I expect. Most things usually are. :D

Oh yes, I'd forgotten about her!

By the way, has anybody noticed how there seems to be considerably less online anti-semitism on display since Hilary's little mishap last November? It's almost as if the Left are so consumed by their obsessive hatred of Trump (and Farage, to a lesser extent) that they've completely forgotten they're supposed to bark at the moon whenever Israel or any topic related to Jewish people is mentioned. Their tiny brains just can't take in too much at once, I suppose.
