Thanet council staff are clearing tree damage at Dane Park in Margate which was caused by high winds last night (October 20).
Park user Michael-Paul Thompson said: “The path was covered with broken branches from many trees, including the main one which appears to have rotten roots that snapped during the storm.
“Another tree on the other side of the park has snapped near the top, and even in the tree-covered pathway there’s evidence of seemingly healthy branches breaking off.”
Yesterday the Met Office issued an amber warning for very heavy rain across the south-east.
Thanet’s open spaces team is currently clearing the debris at the park.
A council spokesperson said: “We were notified early this morning (Thursday 21 October) of damage to a tree in Dane Park, caused by recent high winds. Our Open Spaces team is in attendance, with two vehicles, and is clearing the area of debris.”
