Diss Christmas tree still lying in Mere this morning
The floating Christmas tree in Diss Mere was still capsized this morning after being knocked over by high winds yesterday.
The 20ft tree, organised by Diss Rotary Club, and illuminated at the town's Christmas lights switch-on last week toppled over as gusts between 50mph and 80mph swept across Norfolk.
Drivers were caught up in long tailbacks after a tree was brought down on the outskirts of Norwich. A car was hit by the tree, in Dereham Road, Costessey, but the driver escaped unhurt.
Fire crews were called to the QD shop in Gorleston High Street after part of the store-front fascia was blown down shortly after 12.30pm.
Traffic delays were also reported across the region at lunchtime after a number of trees were felled in Long Stratton, Neatishead, King's Lynn, Ringland and Lessingham.
