Emergency services have been working to clear fallen trees from road across Lowestoft and Waveney as a result of Storm Doris.

As high gusts of wind, which have reached more than 60 mph, batter the region Suffolk Police have been assisting Suffolk Highways and UK Power Networks with more than 200 reports of fallen trees or fallen power cables.

These disruptions included Dell Road, Denmark Road, Elm Tree Road West, Northgate and Gunton Avenue in Lowestoft, Hall Road and Holly Road in Oulton Broad, Black Street in Gisleham and the B1074 Oulton Broad to Blundeston Road.

Four trees were also reported down in Clarkes Lane in Carlton Colville.
