Disruption across Coventry and the West Midlands as Storm Eunice ripped through the region

THERE has been some disruption across Coventry and the West Midlands today, caused by Storm Eunice.

West Midlands Fire Service said it had received almost 50 calls in the region and had responded to 11.

In Frederick Neal Avenue, Coventry, a house roof blew onto the road, damaging cars. Firefighters removed the remaining loose tiles and cleared debris.

In Corporate Street, Coventry, a glass balcony on the sixth floor of a building became loose and was secured by crews.

Roads were affected by fallen trees in the region, including one on the A429 Kenilworth Road near the junction with Kenpas Highway which led to delays.

There is debris across many roads in the region – drivers are urged to take care as the clean-up continues.

Train services were also disrupted – West Midlands Railway had warned people ‘not to travel’ yesterday ahead of Storm Eunice’s arrival.

Blanket speed restrictions on the region’s railway lines and debris on the lines led to delays and cancellations.
