As the county takes a bashing from strong winds highways teams have been working hard to clear the roads.

It's been a busy day for Wiltshire Council and the work is still ongoing.

They've dealt with fallen trees across the county working alongside the Police, Fire and Electricity Network to keep us safe.

That work will continue this evening as winds continue to lash the county and we're being urged to make sure we report any fallen trees or debris.

Wiltshire Council have also had multiple reports about 'trampoline incidents' and people are being urged to make sure the popular play equipment is secure.

THANK-YOU FROM POLICE:

Meanwhile Salisbury Police have thanked members of the public for their help today. 

 

A number of sporting events were cancelled today including Salisbury's junior parkrun.

This picture of fallen branches in Churchill Gardens, where the weekly event is held, shows the reason why that decision was taken!
