Emergency services still dealing with fallen trees

Emergency services are still dealing with reports of dozens of trees down across the region with roads closed as a result.

Hugh Griffith, Highway Operations Control Centre said: "We started off with flooding, there was more persistent rain, and because of all the leaf fall that washed towards drains we had localised flooding throughout the evening and the start of the early part of the morning.

"But when the winds came through between 2 and 3am we started getting the trees, and we have had some very big trees fall down."
