Motorists are being urged to take care on West Norfolk's roads tonight as the impact of Storm Dennis begins to be felt.

Norfolk Police say they are currently dealing with fallen trees in Lynn, Narborough and Swaffham, but warn there could be other issues that they don't yet know about.

The force tweeted a short time ago: "There may be others we are unaware of on back roads, so please drive with caution."

Police are warning drivers to take care on the roads tonight amid reports of several fallen trees.

The warning comes after the Lynn Mart closed early this evening as the high winds blew in. Earlier, the weather forced the postponement of King's Lynn Town's match with Bradford Park Avenue at the Walks.

There are also speed restrictions on Great Northern rail services between Lynn and Cambridge, while UK Power Networks is reporting a loss of supplies for some customers in the Pentney and Narborough areas.

So far, however, the problems are not as extensive as they were during Storm Ciara last weekend.

West Norfolk is covered by a yellow Met Office weather warning for strong winds, which covers the period up to noon tomorrow.
