Ipswich parks opened late as a result of the high winds this morning.
Ipswich Borough Council opened Christchurch, Holywells, Alexandra and Stone Lodge parks late this morning after inspections for possible tree damage had been carried out.
Updates will be posted on social media, www.ipswich.gov.uk and in the local Press.
A council spokesman said: “We don’t take risks with public safety but wanted to get the parks open as soon as we safely could.”
Meanwhile, the town’s bin crews are continuing on their collection rounds, with traffic getting easier since the Orwell Bridge was reopened to traffic.
The town’s cemeteries also fully opened later than usual – during the storm they were only opened for people attending booked services but once the winds eased they opened as normal.
