WIND speeds of 89 mph were recorded at The Needles last night at the height of Storm Eleanor.

Staff from Island Roads were out overnight clearing debris and fallen trees from Pound Lane, Calbourne and Harding Shute, Ryde.

Works also took place at Newport Road, Niton and Pondwell Hill, Nettlestone.

The PFI contractor says that roads are now clear but has warned drivers to take care in the blustery conditions today.
