Strong winds bring down trees

STRONG winds blew down trees and caused minor disruption throughout St Albans this morning.

Police cleared fallen trees in London Colney, Marshalswick, Clarence Park and on Sandridge Road towards Wheathampstead.

Herts Highways were also called when a tree fell across the A414 close to the longabout near Colney Heath, in the direction of Hatfield, and to clear a fallen tree in Harpenden.

Herts Police had urged drivers to be cautious during the morning rush-hour, given the strong winds.

The poor weather conditions are expected to continue into the evening.
