Like every region of the UK, Cornwall was battered by storm Ciara at the beginning of the week, and the bad weather continued over the following days.

The wind was very strong – some gusts reaching eighty miles an hour. Winds of this strength are not unusual in Cornwall; however, there were a few problems to be sorted out in its wake.

According to Western Power Distribution, around five hundred homes were left without power across Cornwall and Devon.

Traffic signs and house roofs were damaged by the wind, and two trees fell across the A390.

The roof of the St Dennis energy plant was also damaged and it was necessary to suspend the export of electricity to the National Grid so that staff could inspect the damage.

Train and ferry services were delayed and the airline Flybe cancelled the majority of its flights at Exeter and Newquay.

On Monday, the Fire and Rescue Service reported that houses all over Cornwall, from Penzance to Par, had been struck by lightning. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured, but the houses’ electricity supplies were damaged and fire-fighters had to work on the roof to remove loose tiles.

Cornwall will receive funding from the government as part of a project to plant more than 50,000 trees across Cornwall and England.

Thirteen projects across the country will receive a share of the Urban Tree Challenge Fund which is worth £10 million.

In Cornwall, a project has been approved to develop areas for outdoor learning, and to promote more diverse ecosystems.

Environment Secretary, Theresa Villiers, said that the new trees would assist in the fight against climate change and help people living in towns feel closer to the natural world.

Across the thirteen projects, the government hopes to plant more than 22,000 large trees and about 28,000 smaller ones.

And this is only the first tranche of funding. Next spring, projects across the country will be invited to apply for money from the next tranche of the fund.

By 2025, the government have promised to plant 30,000 hectares of trees every year across the UK.

A plan to improve the A30 between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross has been approved by the government.

According to the plan, a new dual carriageway will be built between the two sites, as well as a two-level roundabout at Chiverton. The works will commence later this year, and it is hoped that the project will be complete by 2023. The old road will be retained for local traffic.

The cost of the work will be about £290 million. The project will receive funding worth £8 million pounds from the European Regional Development Fund and the rest will be provided by the government.

A spokesman for Cornwall Council, councillor Geoff Brown, said that the decision was ‘very welcome news’ for people commuting to and from work. And Josh Hodder, project manager for Highways England, added the road was ‘incredibly important for Cornwall’s future’.
