Fallen trees and debris after the Great Storm of 1987

Thirty years ago winds of more than 100-miles an hour raged across Sussex.

The Great Storm of 1987, which took place on the night of October 15, left a trail of destruction across the county, and it is regarded as the worst storm in living memory. Here we look back at images of the damage caused in the Sussex Express patch.
