Roads closed by fallen tree and an overturned car

A FALLEN tree partially blocked a road near Nettlebed after being brought down by strong winds.

It came down near the BP petrol station on the A4130 at about 10.30am on Tuesday.

Police closed the road at the junction of High Street and Watlington Street as well as near Nuffield and traffic was diverted via Park Corner.

Tree surgeons were called in to cut up and remove the tree.

Many parts of the country experienced high winds and travel disruption on Tuesday in the storm that was the tail-end of Hurricane Gonzalo, which hit the island of Bermuda last week.
