A team of environmental volunteers is helping residents cope with the aftermath of last week's tornado in Birmingham.
Volunteers from Community Service Volunteers are working with residents of badly damaged properties in south Birmingham to help clear the worst of the fallen trees in the area.
A volunteer chainsaw operator has helped remove lorry loads of material from the King's Heath, Small Heath and Moseley areas.
The volunteers from CSV's Environment team, based in Saltley, usually find themselves involved in green projects across the city, including a kerbside recycling scheme which enables 8,000 households to recycle their garden waste into compost.
They are also involved with a scheme operating in five Birmingham wards, in which adults at risk of coronary heart disease or with health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes are encouraged to walk in the city's parks.
