A Northumberland road is closed after high winds brought down a tree and power cables, leaving homes in the area without electricity.

The B6348 near Wooler is currently closed in both directions between the B6349 junction and the Weetwood Avenue junction, because of a fallen tree and collapsed power cables.

Northern Powergrid contacted homeowners at around 10pm stating that it would hope to have power restored 'by 11.30pm', adding that 'it could be sooner' if the company was able to connect to another part of the network.

If your power is out and you haven't heard from Northern Powergrid, you can contact them on 0800 66 88 77.

Northern Rail has also confirmed that there are 'currently no trains between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh because of overhead wire damage'.

Storm Desmond has also brought down Alnwick's Market Place Christmas tree.
