Tonight's River of Light event is expected to go ahead following Storm Ciaran.

Last night, the River of Light trail was forced to shut down due to heavy rain and strong winds battering Merseyside.

Liverpool City Council posted an update on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, that read: "Due to the adverse weather conditions, River of Light will not be taking place tonight. Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but hopefully we’ll be back tomorrow."

The Visit Liverpool X account has now announced the event is back on and guests are free to roam the city and enjoy the illumination trail at their leisure. Visit Liverpool said: "River of Light is back tonight!

"Following yesterday's cancellation due to weather conditions, River of Light will return this evening from 5pm-9pm!"

River of Light is available for another three evenings before leaving on Sunday, November 5. You can find the full trail, information on installations and more details here.
