Storm Doris comes through Boston
Storm Doris arrived last Thursday with winds between 50 and 60mph sweeping through the borough. The Boston area was issued with a yellow weather warning by the Met Office.
Fallen trees and road closures caused delays around the borough throughout the day including railway barriers coming down due to the high winds causing traffic standstills at peak travelling times.
More than 15 fallen trees were reported to the council to be cleared from the highways, footpaths and open spaces. The highways and footpaths were cleared as a matter of urgency by the council's ground staff. Central Park was closed for the safety of the public and people were advised to stay out of St John's Park on Skirbeck Road due to a fallen tree.
On Friday morning our street cleaning team were out from 5.30am picking up litter that had been blown around the town by the storm.
