A tree fell outside Kirton fire station this morning (Tuesday) blocking the entrance to the building and the road outside.

A police spokesman said the tree fell onto the B1397 at about 11am and could safely be assumed to be caused by the wind.

Crews from the station winched it off the road and arrangements are in place for it to be chopped up.

A spokesman for Fire and Rescue said that as far as they were aware it hadn’t caused any further problems.
