FIRE FIGHTERS were called to take care of fallen trees and loose tiles during yesterday’s strong winds.
The North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said its York crew was called to James Street, York after a large willow was left in a dangerous position due to high winds.
“The crew tried to cut down the tree using ropes and personal strength, but they were unable to do so and the incident was handed over to the City of York to deal with it,” a spokesperson said.
Firefighters were also called to Carelton, Skipton, after a tree fell on a neighbor’s car to assess the risk of more trees falling.
“A municipal tree surgeon was also present on arrival and our crew helped them remove tree limbs from the track and car,” they said.
Humberside Fire & Rescue Service said crews went to a property in Boothferry Road, Goole, and used an aerial platform to remove loose tiles.
The crews also used an aerial ladder platform in Burstall Hill, Bridlington, to re-attach the tarp to a roof.
