Four trees victim to the wild weather

Another tree has fallen victim to the strong winds recently. At least four stumps have appeared in Carter Street where a thunderstorm cell passed over – this one outside the church.

A few days ago strong winds in a thunderstorm damaged many of the established trees in Carter Street.

The  storm brought down a tree onto the roof of No 3 Carter Street.

A crane had to be used to carefully remove it.
