Police warn of ‘fallen trees, falling branches and flying trampolines’ in Mid and East Antrim

Police in Mid and East Antrim have urged travellers to take care on the roads this morning, as departments deal with the aftermath of Storm Arwen which moved across Northern Ireland on Friday (26 November), into this morning.

The PSNI said locally they had received 15 reports of ‘Highway disruption’ in Carrickfergus, Larne, and similarly in Ballymena.

In a statement a police spokesperson commented:

“Please be very careful if travelling today.

“Due to the storm, in Carrickfergus and Larne we have had 15 reports of Highway disruption.

“Normally this term could include broken down vehicles, animals on a road, lights out but these 15 have included, fallen trees, fallen branches and flying trampolines!

“Ballymena is a similar story.

“Take extra time if traveling to do your Christmas shopping today, be aware of your surroundings and additional risks with the storm.

“I am not aware of any road closures but it's 6am and the wind is still strong with a weather warning in place until 6pm, so this could change.”
