Motorists advised to drive with caution following heavy overnight rain

Motorists have been advised to drive with caution this morning following heavy overnight rain.

A number of local roads are flooded with surface water lingering on many more. A large part of the Ardee Road is currently flooded with several housing estates also effected.

The M1 motorway has also been closed in both directions at junction 20 on the Dundalk side of the border due to flooding.

Meanwhile, the railway line has reopened between Newry and Dundalk having earlier been closed due to subsidence near the track caused by heavy rain.
