Overhanging tree causes emergency road closure

There has been an emergency road closure in York Avenue, East Cowes near John Nash Avenue. 

York Avenue is closed from 10am (Tues) to remove a large tree overhanging the carriageway in both directions and is expected to take several hours.

A large tree has moved and is resting upon the power cables and needs to be removed ahead of strong winds expected later this evening and tomorrow.

Traffic diversions will be in place around the town for the next few hours. This will affect the ferry and town traffic.
