A busy road in Norwich is now clear after a tree fell down during Storm Franklin.

Norwich Police tweeted at 8.45am on Monday (February 21) that Ipswich Road outside City College Norwich was blocked due to a large tree coming down.

People were asked to avoid the area and find an alternative route, but it has now been removed by Highways England. 

Storm Franklin arrived on Sunday and The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning, which remains in place until 1pm on Monday.

The arrival of Storm Franklin came just two days after Storm Eunice caused thousands of homes to be without power for 24 hours or more after lines were damaged by fallen trees.
