A FALLEN tree blocked a street in Hereford this afternoon after Storm Kathleen arrived.

The named storm, which saw weather warnings in force for the west of England, Wales, parts of Scotland, and Northern Ireland, brought gales to parts of the country.

In Herefordshire, gusts have brought down some trees, including one at the entrance of Cotswold Drive, off Kings Acre Road.

Another fallen tree blocked the busy B4221 at Gorsley this morning.
