Fosse Lane in Thistleton is closed after a tree fell down in high winds.

The large tree fell at about 5pm yesterday (Tuesday). Police were called to the scene and the road was closed. Some people stopped to try to remove some of the smaller branches but the road remained closed overnight and into this morning.

Rutland County Council has taken over the job and workmen are currently removing the tree.
