Sudbury’s community wardens have been busy all day as Storm Doris hits the town.

The latest tree to be removed was on Ballingdon Hill where the road was blocked.

Road blockages were also cleared by head warden Bradley Smith and his team on the A134 near KFC.

Fallen trees have also been cleared in Valley Road, First Avenue, York Road, Melford Road and the top of Kitchen Hill.

Mr Smith was funded to get his chainsaw qualifications using locality budget monies from Suffolk county councillor John Sayers.

He told the Free Press the team would be working late to ensure any more blockages were cleared.

“That has been money well spent today [chainsaw license]. We have cleared about 13 or 14 trees today,

“As we are nice people we are going to carry on until we feel we can go home.”
