Roads across Northern Ireland that were closed due to fallen trees and debris in the wake of Hurricane Ophelia have reopened.

More than 300 Department of Infrastructure staff and contractors have been clearing around 200 roads across the country.

Gullies and grilles will continue to be checked and cleared of leaf fall over the next few days.

Given the predicted rainfall in today's weather forecast, some surface localised flooding is possible.

Sandbag stocks are being replenished and local communities are encouraged to remain aware and to take necessary precautions when advised.

The Department also ask landowners to remove any fallen trees on their property that are near to roads or at roadsides.
