Edgworth: Paths around Entwistle Reservoir flood

The footpaths around Entwistle Reservoir in Edgworth have flooded, shown in pictures sent into the Bolton News Camera Club.

Camera Club member Gillian McGowan captured the shots, which show large areas of footpaths by the reservoir completely submerged in water.

Other shots appear to show the reservoir to be very high.

This comes after a yellow weather warning for rain was issued for Bolton earlier this week.
