A fallen tree left a Fenland road closed for several hours yesterday morning.

Friday Bridge Road in Elm was blocked by the tree from 4am on Tuesday after it fell, blocking a driveway and the whole road.

Police and officers from Cambridgeshire County Council’s Highways department were called to the scene.

Work to remove the fallen tree began shortly before 7am.

Motorists were urged to avoid the road, which joins the B1101 towards March at nearby Friday Bridge, while the removal work was being completed.
