Suffolk police are at the A1214 Main Road in Kesgrave, near the Bell Inn and the junction for the Tesco supermarket.

The tree is covering half of the road, but cars are still able to pass through.

Witnesses reported seeing police cutting the tree with chainsaws to remove it from the road.

Strong winds from Storm Ciara have been battering Suffolk throughout Sunday morning, with speeds of up to 70mph expected in the afternoon.
