Eight Transport for Buckinghamshire teams have been dealing with severe weather call-outs since 6am today (Monday October 28).

They have responded to reports of fallen trees in more than 100 locations (correct at Monday 10.45am) across the county.

A road at Willow Bank, Denham, where a tree fell on telephone lines, has been closed for safety reasons.

There has been one report of minor flooding and a fallen tree in Farnham Lane, between Burnham and Farnham Royal, which was being cleared during the morning (Monday).

TfB teams expect to be involved in the clear-up operation throughout the day. They are being assisted by their supply chain partners, Salcey and South Bucks tree surgeons.

The Met Office said winds across Buckinghamshire were at their severest between 6am and 7am, with gusts of up to 56mph. Wind speeds reduced to around 34mph by 9am and speeds of between 15mph and 18mph were being forecast for the rest of the day.
