Video: Storm Ali wreaks havoc across the north-east

The north-east has been battered by Storm Ali, causing travel chaos and leaving thousands without power.

Trains were cancelled and roads closed as severe weather conditions hit the area.

Wind damage to scaffolding on Crown Street

At one point there were more than 7,000 properties without power in areas including Inverurie, Laurencekirk, Maud, Westhill and Catterline.

In Aberdeen, a section of a primary school had to be evacuated after tree branches came down in the playground.

The Met Office issued a weather warning, with gusts of 65-75mph recorded yesterday afternoon.

Homes and businesses were without electricity for several hours while engineers worked to restore power.

A spokeswoman from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) said: “We would like to apologise to our customers and thank them for their patience as our engineers work in challenging conditions to restore their power supplies as quickly and as safely as possible.

“As Storm Ali tracks through the country, we are urging members of the public not to approach any damage to our equipment and instead report it either by calling 105 or via our Power Track app, and our teams will investigate as soon as possible.”

The tree down at St Peter’s School on Dunbar Street

Crown Street in Aberdeen city centre was closed at 1pm yesterday after scaffolding came loose.

In Torry, Greyhope Road was shut due to concerns regarding a roof at the Sepa headquarters on Sinclair Road, with fire crews helping police in the incident. Staff were sent home. Schoolchildren were also evacuated from a cabin at St Peter’s School on Dunbar Street.

A spokesman for Aberdeen City Council said “a couple of substantial branches” from a tree in the playground had come down.

An Australian football club has issued a grovelling apology after its players dressed in blackface as Serena and Venus Williams

Venus Williams and Serena Williams

An Australian football club has issued a grovelling apology after three of its players were photographed in blackface.
The athletes were dressed as tennis champions Serena Williams and Venus Williams and Kenyan-born football player Aliir Aliir.

The incident follows the controversy surrounding Australian newspaper The Herald Sun’s mean-spirited crusade against Serena Williams after the American’s outburst at the 2018 US Open final.

Three football players have been photographed dressed in blackface as tennis champions Serena Williams and Venus Williams.

The athletes play for the Australian Rules Football team Penguin Football Club, a sports team based in Tasmania, according to The Washington Post.

They wore outfits and makeup to dress up as the Williams sisters and Kenyan-born football player Aliir Aliir as part of “Mad Monday” — an end-of-season celebration.

A photo of the “costumes” was posted on social media and, though it has been removed from Facebook, it has been shared by a number of Twitter users.

Some Australians still have no clue what is considered racist. This Mad Monday “costume” is clearly racist. And I’m a person who is fed up with today’s over-the-top political correctness. pic.twitter.com/oWPR0WjeUx

Penguin Football Club has since issued a grovelling apology.

“It was not their intention to upset anyone and all they meant to do was dress as one of their sporting idols,” the club said, according to Australian ABC News.

“Their actions were never intended to be racist in any way. Those concerned have been reprimanded and will be given support to make sure they understand that their behaviour was racist and hurtful and that it will not happen again.

The club went on: “The players concerned have acknowledged that what they did was completely and utterly unacceptable and would like to apologise unreservedly …read more
