Fallen tree at Dark Lane/Galtons Lane, Belbroughton. Worcestershire Highways are aware.

Old Rectory Lane in Alvechurch is blocked by a fallen tree. Worcestershire Highways are heading there as soon as they can.

A fallen tree between Longbridge and Redditch mean there are currently no services between those changes.
