Report originally received from Rachel Bailey

Latest information from Cheshire East (4pm)

The polling station has now reopened again -- having been given the "all clear" by the fire service.

Original report (2pm)

Apparently there is currently (Thursday, 3pm) a fire behind the Methodist Church in Hankelow.

This is being controlled by the Fire Service, but meanwhile the Church cannot be used as a voting station, as it should be.

So please be prepared to be directed to a temporary facility nearby to vote in today's election.
