Oxfordshire hit by storms

Storms and flash flooding caused disruption overnight in some parts of England and Wales. Oxfordshire was one of the worst affected, with 40mm of rain falling in one hour in Brize Norton on Thursday morning.

3,500 properties in the Alvescot, Woodstock, Wootton and Witney areas were without electricity on Thursday morning after power cables were brought down overnight.

Part of the A40 between Witney and Oxford was closed due to a power cable being brought down.
