It's a bit blowey!

18th January 2018

What a morning, I ain't ever none one like it!  Well maybe one or two, hopefully your day wasn’t interrupted too much and you managed to arrive safely. 

Its days like today I realise again how amazing listeners to this radio station are, from the moment I went on air till the time I turned the microphone off at 9 the switchboard was jammed with listeners calling to update others with the problems they had seen.  I don't think there could have been a more accurate and up to date travel service anywhere, it was amazing.

It wasn't just calls about road blockages and traffic jams there were stories of great coming together and members of the public helping each other.  One example was a group of lorry drivers removing a tree from A10 in the early hours of the morning which was then followed by the help emergency services received.  Just before 8am we were told how one person had arrived with a full size chain saw to help clear the tree that had been obstructing the road and causing big queues.  HGV driver’s spoke of their concern driving high sided vehicles and others provided updates on the location of others property that had blown from garden to garden.  Amongst the property found today just like you always read about one of those great big garden trampolines, it might be worth checking if you still have yours!

A big thank you to everyone who got involved and I hope the coverage today helped your journey in some way.
