Bournemouth Echo: Roads in Dorset blocked due to fallen trees Roads in Dorset blocked due to fallen trees

ROADS across Dorset are blocked because of fallen trees.

The A351 Sandford Road in Wareham was partially blocked in both directions near the Organford Road junction because of a fallen tree earlier this morning.

Elsewhere, North Street in Winterbourne Kingston is partially blocked near the Winterbourne Kingston junction because of a fallen tree.

Strong winds from last night have felled trees at Broadmayne, Wareham and between Broadwater and Bridport.

The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset today.

A spokesperson said: "The public should be aware that this may cause some localised flooding. 

"Slow-moving frontal systems, containing some very mild and moist air, look like bringing 20 to 30 mm of rain quite widely but perhaps nearer 50 mm in a few locations."

A tree is partially blocking the A352 main road at Broadmayne between the Knighton Lane junction and the A353 junction.

On the B3162 in West Dorset a fallen tree is blocking the road in both directions between Broadwater and Bridport.

Motorists are advised to find alternative routes.

A bit late in the day to issue warnings after everyone was swamped and blown all over last night.

It's no good the met office having a multi million pound computer to tell us that!
