A band of torrential rain and strong winds swept across the Anglia region in the afternoon on Sunday 30 March.

The sudden weather change caused damage across the area including an animal shelter with solar panels destroyed and a garden fence blown down in Brooke Grove, Ely.

Vanessa Norris said: “These are pictures of what is left of my solar panels and field shelter after the storms on Sunday around 4.30pm. Luckily the NFU is taking care of everything for us, but thought you might like some additional images of the storm damage.”
