Order has been restored in the borough after Monday's storm caused chaos on Enfield's streets
Normal service has resumed in Enfield following Monday’s storm that gusted through the borough.
Storm St Jude saw a number of trees felled, chaos on the roads and many delays on train travel but the dust has now settled.
All parks were re-opened, refuse collection put in place and cemetery burials went ahead as usual yesterday with rail links to and from the borough restored to normal running times today.
Highways staff at Enfield Borough Council dealt with more than 250 incidents of tree damage with the majority of tree affected on private property. Tree officers dealt with more than 30 felled or damaged trees in the borough.
Street cleaning could be slower than usual due to volume of debris on the streets of the borough.
Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, Councillor Chris Bond, said: “Council officers worked round the clock yesterday to minimise the disruption caused by tree fall and storm damage to our borough and I’d like to thank everyone for their hard work over the last few days especially the significant number of staff who volunteered to work extra shifts to make sure Enfield was back to normal as soon as possible."
