A supermarket was forced to close its doors after a tree fell on a power line.

The Morrisons store in Beccles had to turn customers away on Saturday (August 10) due to a power outage which affected a number of businesses in the area.

A tree had fallen on a power line alongside the A146 between Beccles and Lowestoft during high winds.

Power was out from 2.30pm until 3am.

A spokesman for the store said: "It is one of our busiest trading days, but sometimes we can't help mother nature unfortunately."
