PEMBROKESHIRE has once again been battling high winds as the tenth 'named storm' of the winter hits the county.

Pembrokeshire County Council have confirmed that the Cleddau Bridge has now re-opened to all traffic after being closed to high-sided vehicles this morning.

There have also been reports of fallen trees at: 

•    St Dogmaels towards Poppit
•    Hawthorn Rise, Haverfordwest 
•    near Williamston Nursing Home, Houghton, near Burton
•    Victoria Road, Pembroke Dock.

Also, a bus shelter roof is loose at Treffgarne Owen.

Wind speeds over 70mph have been recorded in the county, while the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for high winds, snow and ice for Wales.


Rain, sleet and snow are giving some tricky conditions this morning. #StormJake will bring gales across SW Eng too
