Work is still going on to clear trees blown down by Storm Doris 24 hours later.

Streets in Frodsham, Helsby and Winsford are shut because of trees.

A trunk also brought down power lines on the A49 in Whitley.

There was widespread travel disruption to the 'extreme' weather conditions from the storm on Thursday.
