TREES fell and a supermarket shelter was blown across a car park as the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia hit Worcestershire. 

Yesterday, The Met Office issued a yellow warning of very windy weather as the remnants of the hurricane hit the UK.

Worcestershire County Council dealt with 19 trees that had fallen across Worcestershire.

A tree blocked the road in Gilberts End Lane in Hanley Castle causing the road to close and Jennett Tree Lane in Callow End was also blocked by a fallen tree.

A tree also collapsed in Claines Lane at the junction Cornmeadow Lane.

Branches fell from a tree in Hylton Road, Worcester next to Sabrina Bridge forcing pedestrians to have to pick their way through the debris.

This morning (Tuesday, October 17) Worcester City Council used a woodchipper to get rid of the branches.

The storm also caused power lines to go down in Bath Road, Worcester and fencing was blown into the road in Badsey near to Horsebridge Avenue.

The winds also affected the shelter at M&S in Malvern.

The peak time 5.56pm train from Worcester to Birmingham New Street was also cancelled.

The storm caused problems across the UK and Ireland, with three people dying in Ireland due to the problems caused by the wind.

The sky was also turned an odd yellow hue, due to the hurricane dragging tropical air and dust from the Sahara.
