A police spokesman said: “As hard as we might try, because of a fallen tree and associated ‘foliage’, I don’t think we will be able to push this one off the road!”

County highways workers were called to remove the tree.

The spokesman said: “We’ve had to close Cromwell Road as a tree trunk is blocking the road between Tesco and the A47.

“The closure is on between Tesco and the A47.
