Cambridgeshire Police have just announced the closure of Station Road in March which is set to cause chaos during rush hour.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in town, one resident had their chicken coop crushed as a result of the high winds.

Birgit Holdsworth said: "The trees in Cawood close, March has long been regarded a danger by local residents because a lot of them are rotten.

"A few years ago a large branch broke off and nearly demolished someone's rabbit hutch and last night a massive one crushed our chicken coop."
