Drivers have had to rethink their journeys overnight.
Suffolk Constabulary said the B1506 at Kentford near Newmarket was obstructed by a tree at about midnight. Within about 30 minutes, officers and “the very helpful public” had cleared it – with the help of a broom.
A similar situation greeted motorists in Stoke Road in Newton Longville, Buckinghamshire. Thames Valley Police advised people not to drive “unless absolutely necessary”.
