Severe weather can cause great disruption, here you will find guidance on where to go for information and updates.
Whilst most of us enjoy sunny weather, the extreme heat of a heatwave can be seriously damaging to the health, and can sometimes be fatal. The link below provides information about who is at risk during a heatwave, and advice about what to do in case of a heatwave.
Whilst extreme heat is dangerous to everyone it is especially so to babies and young children, older people, those living in care homes, and those in certain at-risk groups. Find out more about keeping well in summer.
During cold weather there has been some discussion regarding the clearance of pavements by individuals.
There is no law stopping you from clearing snow and ice on the pavement outside your home or from public spaces. It's unlikely you'll be sued or held legally responsible for any injuries on the path if you have cleared it carefully. Find out more about keeping warm in winter and the 'Snowbusters' scheme.
Remember, people walking on snow and ice have a responsibility to be careful themselves.
