The image of a large tree that fell on the Barrowford Road at the Fence and Higham boundary was taken by Andy Devanney this morning while there was still lots of snow on the ground.

The tree fell last night and police closed the road for several hours. It re-opened this morning and was passable with care.

Lane Bottom in Burnley was made impassable by a fallen tree and volunteers helped to remove a tree from outside St Augustine's RC Church in Burnley's Lowerhouse Lane this morning.
