Trees were uprooted across Bolton as Storm Isha causes disruption across the country.

Bolton is under a yellow weather warning for wind, an alert which will not be lifted until Wednesday afternoon.

There have been train delays caused by the storm and gusts today are expected to reach more than 40 mph.

Trees uprooted by the storm included one outside Blackrod Sports and Community Centre.

The tree did not damage anything, but another tree fell just off Chorley New Road, with locals saying it narrowly missed a car.

Tree surgeons are said to be on standby as people deal with the aftermath of Storm Isha.

The Bolton News: Blackrod Sports and Community Centre

One eyewitness said: “I heard the tree outside the Blackrod centre fell, it’s just not surprising because so many trees in Bolton are already old and waiting to fall.

“Ideally, these old trees need to be checked because think of how many more could fall and injure someone.”

The heavy winds are set to continue into the afternoon today, after which it will subside.

The temperature will reach eight degrees today with a low of three degrees.

Belmont Tree Surgeons were called out this morning to a 'swaying' tree at 6am.

Owner Mark Taberner said: "We are at a job right now in Sharples for a tree at the back of a house that is swaying.

"We are taking it down quickly so it does not cause any damage."

Mark advises people to look out for trees swaying at the base near the ground.

He said: "If a tree is swaying at the base, then it could blow over.

"We have had so much wet weather that the ground is very saturated and this makes trees sway like this."

While there are no impacts on flights today at Manchester Airport, yesterday a TUI flight was diverted from Sharm Al Sheikh to Manchester Airport instead of to Glasgow.

The Met Office said “everybody” was affected by the storm.

Heavy downpours battered some places, with 28 flood warnings in place in England and 50 in Scotland.

The Met Office said Storm Isha, the ninth named storm to hit the UK since the season began in September is expected to pull away through the day, although it is likely to remain windy with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers.

Showers are expected to be heaviest and most frequent in the north and west on Monday, but easing with a dry night except in the north-west, and winds also easing.

A bright start to Tuesday will see cloud and rain moving in from the west and winds increasing with severe gales possible.
