Fallen trees and power cuts as Storm Doris hits Denbighshire


Josh Morris

NORTH Wales has been battered by winds of up to 93 miles an hour today as Storm Doris made it's presence felt.

A tree fell into overhead lines near St Brigid's School on Mold Road in Denbigh while the A544 in Llansannan was also blocked by a falling tree.
A spokeswoman for SP Manweb said: "We received reports of a grounded conductor on Mold Road in Denbigh at 9am. 
"One customer is affected. engineers are currently working to reconnect them.
"We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

A tree has also fallen in Rhewl, blocking the road. Motorists were having to turn back as cutting equipment was used to clear the main Denbigh Road.

However, farmers had to break out the chainsaws to clear the trees from a minor road nearby.

Free Press reader Charlene Roberts took a picture of her brother's white van that was crushed by a tree in St Asaph this morning.

Ruthin Leisure centre was also forced to close after being hit by a power cut.

A statement from the leisure centre read: "Due to a power cut, we have had to close the centre. 

"We will inform you once we have reopened."
