High winds force closure of homesStately homes and gardens in Cheshire have been closed because of high winds expected to batter northern England.

Gusts of up to 65mph were forecast for parts of the UK, with the North West expected to bear the brunt.

As a result, The National Trust decided to close its properties including Quarry Bank Mill, Dunham Massey and Lyme Park on safety grounds.

Tatton Park remained open to allow up to 3,000 runners to take part in a Race for Life event.
