More than 27,000 properties without power in Cornwall

In Cornwall at least 27,000 properties are without power.

Martyn Alvey, Cornwall Council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “Storm Eunice has left in its wake a lot of damage and disruption – including power outages for many households across Cornwall.

“While the power companies are doing everything they can to get households back on grid, and the council and our partners are working hard to clean up the debris and damage left by the storm, there will be residents who this evening don’t have power at home.

“We are encouraging people in Cornwall to look out for their neighbours who are vulnerable and might be struggling this weekend.”

In Monmouthshire highway crews have cleared more than 50 fallen trees which blocked roads.

Richard John, leader of Monmouthshire County Council, said: “I would like to thank everyone in Monmouthshire who has avoided travel today – conditions are still looking challenging out there, so it’s wise to avoid any unnecessary journeys.

“Thank you to colleagues who have been working round the clock in difficult conditions to keep everyone safe and to get so many services back up and running for tomorrow.

“I’m incredibly proud of the way that colleagues and residents alike have dealt with the biggest storm we have seen in decades.”
