Police warn of ‘falling trees’ as Storm Isha batters Oxfordshire

Thames Valley Police said anyone who does take to the roads should be “mindful of fallen or falling trees”.

It comes after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for wind in Oxfordshire and large parts of the UK.

The warning will be in place until noon tomorrow (Monday).

Storm Isha is set to bring 70mph gusts of wind to parts of the country and has already caused widespread travel disruption.

Earlier this month, an elderly driver died after colliding with a tree that had fallen onto the road near Goring during Storm Henk.

Police had received a report of the fallen tree 90 minutes before the crash which killed the 87-year-old woman.

As a result, the force referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).
