A huge tree has fallen over in strong winds from Storm Eunice and blocked a busy road near Sudbury town centre.

The tree fell down in the A131 Gainsborough Street, outside the former Bridge café.

Branches from the tree were pictured resting on top of a house on the other side of the road.

It is not clear how much damage was caused by the tree falling.

A witness at the scene said traffic has built up in the area.

He said: "Cars were having to try and U-turn and drive back past other cars. It was chaos."

A number of roads in and around the Sudbury area have been blocked due to the high winds, including one blocking the A134 in Sicklesmere.
