ROADS have been closed by trees blown down during gale force winds last night. (Wednesday)

A tree blocked Warmfield Lane, close to The Plough pub at Kirkthorpe, and fell onto power cables.

And a parked car was damaged when a free fell into it on Langsett Road in Kettlethorpe.

A fallen tree has also blocked Oakenshaw Lane in Walton.

Police have put diversions in place and Wakefield Council has worked through the night to try and clear the blockages.
