Cambridge Council commits more money to replace trees damaged by Storm Doris

Thousands of homes lost power across the region.

Cambridge City Council have made a last minute amendment to their 2017-18 budget to provide enough money to plant new trees replacing those blown down or damaged by Storm Doris.

They have committed £16,000 more than was originally planned bringing the total up to £25,000.

The budget which also included commitments to build new council homes was agreed at a meeting last night.

UK Power Networks say that they've managed to restore electricity to around 8,000 homes in Norfolk and Suffolk this morning.

Extra engineers have been drafted in to help get the power flowing again following damage to lines caused by Storm Doris yesterday.

However, some people may have to wait until this afternoon until things return to normal.

Homes still without power:

  • Norfolk: 6,607
  • Suffolk: 3,538
