Council move fallen trees but borough misses worst of Storm Eleanor
By Sam Cooper | 03/01/2018
COUNCIL staff had to deal with two fallen trees as Storm Eleanor brought gusts of up to 60mph to Rotherham — but the borough seemed to miss the worst of the weather.
High winds overnight on Tuesday into Wednesday morning led to a tree falling onto the A633 St Ann’s Road near Rotherham Leisure Centre at 4.35am on Tuesday.
Rotherham Borough Council staff also moved a tree which was blocking Warren Vale Road near Swinton roundabout at 6.38am.
