Five trees in East Dunbartonshire fell as a result of the violent storm last night (Thursday) which battered central Scotland.

None of the trees caused any major damage in the area but a section of Boclair Road at Boclair Hill in Bearsden was closed for a short period of time as a result of a tree coming down, however this was quickly cleared.

And a tree which came down this morning (Friday) on Kilmardinny Avenue, Bearsden, meant that the road was closed for some time.

There was some minor roof damage at Lennoxtown Primary School, but classes were able to run as normal on Friday.

A large tree has also come down in Lennox Park, Milngavie and it’s completely blocking a path.

Eileen Mulholland Durbin said: “I wonder how long it will take council to get rid of this. The park is a disgrace considering the amount of elderly and young people that use it.”

Ann Davie, director of customer service and transformation, said: “Fortunately there was minimal damage to our buildings and roads as a result of Thursday night’s storm.

“A few roof tiles were damaged and we had five fallen trees, none of which caused any major damage.”
