A tree fell onto a house in a village near Downham today, Monday December 23, as West Norfolk prepared for the latest winter storm to hit the area.

A fire officer was sent to the address in Campsey Road, Southery after the tree came down at around 1.50pm this afternoon.

A Norfolk Fire Service spokesman said advice was given to the householder.

Forecasters had warned of severe gales and heavy rain, which have been sweeping across the region today.

The storm has already caused disruption to transport, with First Capital Connect, the main operator of train services between West Norfolk, Cambridge and London, warning passengers not to travel unless their journeys are essential.

The company has been operating a reduced timetable today and trains will be running at lower speeds until at least 10am on Tuesday.
