Age-old pine trees at Addolorata cemetery were uprooted over the weekend as the trail of destruction from the gale force winds becomes more apparent.

Norfolk and Aleppo pines were uprooted, damaging pathways and graves in the process at the largest public cemetery in Malta.

The cemetery is currently undergoing restoration works as part of a planned expansion.

Malta was left counting the cost of damage caused by the weekend storm, which was the worst of its kind since 1982.

The director general of the Malta Insurance Association, Adrian Galea, told MaltaToday it was too early to quantify the claims as a result of the storm. However, he expected the claims to run into several millions of euros.
