HIGH winds caused a utility pole and street light to collapse.

A resident's garden fence and gate were damaged as a result of the fallen mast in Miller Street, Summerseat.

Gale force winds resulted in the pole blowing over in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Fortunately no one was injured.

Bury Council's emergency response team were called.

They removed the pole so it did not obstruct the road, made the electrics safe and carried out rewiring.
