In recent weeks we have reported a tornado (at Lightwood Green), an earthquake and now we have had the severe winds last night which have caused considerable damage.

The most notable casualty appears to be the barns at Little Heath which have come down overnight. There are also reports of shed roofs being found in neighbouring gardens and even garden equipment and furniture that's been blown some distance. A large advertising hoarding for a development in Whitchurch Road was also flattened.
