HIGH winds and heavy rain battered Newquay last week.

Cornwall Council Highways were called to four reports of trees falling into roads at Penrose near St Eval; Trevenson Road, in Newquay; Winnards Perch, near St Columb; and Tregarrick.

Police were also called to an incident at Trevenson Road in Trencreek as a large fir tree was blocking the road. It had fallen at around 6.45pm near the junction of Pydar Close and had damaged a fence.

A police spokesman said: "Nobody was injured. One lane was passable so officers stayed on site to direct traffic until highways arrived at 8.20pm. The road was clear by 8.45pm."
