Woking Borough Council Neighbourhood Officers and environmental partner, Serco, are today out in force clearing debris and maintaining access across the Borough, following last night's storm.

While many incidents of fallen branches, damaged or fallen trees have already been dealt with, issues continue to be reported to the Council. All outstanding incidents will be assessed by Serco as a matter of urgency, prioritised and scheduled for clearance as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the latest advice from the Environment Agency is that water levels in the Hoe Stream and River Wey are expected to rise, although not affect properties.

Geoff McManus, Neighbourhood Services Manager, said: "Last night's storm has caused disruption to road and footpath networks across the Borough. I would like to reassure residents that both Woking Borough Council Officers and Serco will continue to work in partnership throughout the day to clear roads and footpaths as soon as possible to minimise disruption over the festive break."
