The River Irwell swelled to incredible levels over the weekend as excess rainfall from Storm Ciara came to Salford.
Incredible scenes were captured from all over Salford, showing dense fog and high water marks.
There was also some thunder and lighting in the evening and strong winds long into the night.
The Met office had placed given much of the country a yellow weather warning for wind and rain, with the South East being given an amber warning, signifying a “potential risk to life and property.”

This is the River Irwell by Greyfriar Court not far from Trinity Way around half an hour ago. The news is that the river has peaked so hopefully Salford will avoid the flooding that has affected areas in the city previously affected when the Irwell has breached its banks. #riverirwell #salford Thanks to @nadinerjourno for sourcing the video.
The North West is still subject to a yellow warning for snow and ice.
According to the Met Office, the storm is expected to continue until Wednesday. Much of Greater Manchester is under a yellow warning for snow and ice, including Salford.
