Wirral is returning to normal after "weather bomb" Storm Doris wreaked havoc across the borough.

Two roads remain closed today due to fallen trees - Allport Road in Bromborough and Beaufort Road in Birkenhead - but all other previously blocked routes have been cleared and are now passable.

Council clean-up squads are out and about collecting wind-blown litter and other debris.

As Doris hit, Peel Ports in Liverpool announced the city’s port had been closed due to “100mph gusts of wind.”

The weather system which brought gales, snow and rain to much of the UK, caused travel disruption on the roads and rail network, brought down trees, grounded planes and toppled large vehicles.

Wirral Council received more than 70 calls, 40 of them to report fallen trees.

Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service attended 171 incidents across the county.

West Kirby Concourse and the main building at the Oval in Bebington have re-opened.

The centres were shut as flying debris posed dangers to the public.

The outside grounds areas at both the Oval and Wirral Tennis Centre, Bidston, remain closed to allow debris to be removed.

Merseyrail has returned to full service after it all-but ground to a halt when trees blocked railway lines.

Bin collections:

As a result of yesterday's storm, there has been some disruption to refuse and recycling collections.

If your collection day was on Thursday and your bin was not emptied you can report the missed collection online at wirral.gov.uk.

Collections today continue as usual.
