No widespread disruption in Norwich or Norfolk despite windy weather

Norwich has escaped widespread disruption today despite heavy winds which brought down trees and branches and resulted in power cuts in some areas.

More storms are predicted to batter Britain this week, with severe weather warnings extended to cover the whole of Britain by tomorrow.

Police are warning road users, particularly in Scotland, to keep in touch with weather and travel information. Wind speeds in this part of the country have been less severe than the 150mph gusts which were felt in parts of the Scottish Highlands last week, but have still been strong enough to bring down some trees and branches.

But Norfolk police say there have not been any major incidents as a result of falling trees or branches.

There are also reports of power cuts in some parts of the city, but a spokesman for UK Power Networks said there had been no widespread faults.
