A tree in Clayhall fell victim to the wrath of Storm Eleanor.

Harry Cahn photographed an uprooted tree in Longwood Gardens this morning which was precariously balanced on a fence.

Other residents took to social media to share their experiences of the Storm which was recorded at travelling at speeds of 100mph in some part of the UK.

Diana Kalsi said: “Hardly any sleep at all (last night) very windy.”

While Facebook user Hardeep Shoker said she woke up late this morning after the wind kept her up all night.
