Drivers in West Norfolk are being urged to be cautious this morning because of the threat of fallen trees and power lines caused by Storm Bronagh.

Norfolk Police have reported fallen trees on Waterloo Road in Terrington St Clement, Hunstanton Road in Heacham and on the A134 at Cranwich.

The force tweeted this morning: "Please drive with extra caution this morning owing to the strong overnight winds across the county - trees and cables down may well cause delays especially along rural roads & lanes."

Meanwhile, Norfolk County Council said its teams had been working throughout the night to clear trees and debris from the county's roads.

They have also urged drivers to be careful, particularly on blind bends.

Anyone who sees any fallen trees on roads is asked to report them to the county council's Highways department on 0344 8008020, or to police on 101 if a major route has been blocked.

Meanwhile, electrical engineers have also had a busy night after they were called to several power cuts across the area.

People living in West Lexham and surrounding areas are currently without power and UK Power Networks says it cannot currently give an estimate of when the supply will be restored.

A Met Office weather warning remains in force until 9am today with a further warning also in place for Sunday.
