Pub Praised For Incredible Offer To Rescue People In Storm Arwen

A pub has been praised for its generosity in helping anyone needing a place to stay if they've found themselves stranded or unsafe in Storm Arwen.

The Brewers Arms, in Berwick-on-Tweed, Northumberland, has invited anyone to go in as they have set up a 'make shift shelter' with the heating on and soup available.

Offering the pub out to people on social media, the owners wrote: "If anyone is stranded in these winds or their house is unsafe I can go and set up some kind of make shift shelter in the pub. Please don't be stuck or in trouble or frightened."

In an update, they added: "My mum is now at the pub & anyone is welcome She's got the heating on & soup being heated."

Commenting on the post, one person wrote: "Thank you to everyone at the Brewers Arms. You are looking after my lovely wife tonight on her journey from Nairn to Tyneside. Thank you so much."

Another person added: "Absolute Godsend. We would have been completely stranded without the lovely ladies here. The only ones not to sleep, everyone else has managed to get their heads down safe under their careful watch. Thank you so much."

A third commented: "Margaret you are such a kind and generous lady. Thank you for supporting your community as always. I hope everyone is safe in our beloved Berwick. It's definitely a wild one."

Someone else chimed in: "There'll be no one stuck for anything in this town as long as Margeret's here always there in times of need a godsend."

Another explained how they'd told people the pub was available and they responded: "There's homemade soup and the heatings on. May have to sleep on the floor but it's safe and warm."

Others took the opportunity to pass on their thanks for looking after their nearest and dearest. One said: "Thank you SO much for looking after my parents last night!! You are amazing."

The Met Office issued a rare red weather alert for wind from Friday (26 November) at 3pm until 2am on Saturday (27 November), warning some parts of the country could see gusts reaching 80mph to 90mph.

Police warned people not to travel 'under any circumstances' in areas covered by the red warning.

At least two people have been killed now and over 100,000 homes have been left without power.
