Emergency services off road for storm peak

Emergency services were pulled from the roads this morning as the expected Hurricane Paulette moved closer to Bermuda.

The Emergency Measure Organisation said it had moved to “red status” - no emergency vehicles to move over the height of the storm - at 12.30am.

The services earlier went to “amber status”, which meant only emergencies would be responded to.

A Government spokeswoman said: “The public is reminded to stay indoors and not to move around outside.”
