    The A10 viaduct between Hertford and Ware has also been closed due to the high winds.

    An up-to-date list of the county council services affected by Storm Eunice can be found on a dedicated page on its website.

    Alex Woodman, chief fire officer, said: "I’d like to thank all our colleagues across the emergency services and all the crews, from both our highways and fire services, who have been out in the storm responding to incidents and helping to keep people safe.

    "We’re prioritising the most hazardous incidents, so it will take a while for us to deal with everything, and it may take several days to complete the clear-up.

    "We’re expecting the high winds to continue into the night, so please continue to stay at home if you can and be extremely careful if you do have to go out."
