A BRIDE-TO-BE was killed following an horrific crash on the notorious “13 Bends of Death” near Woodcote — just four days before she was due to get married. Carol Tegg, 26, was driving home to meet her mother, Denise, for a meal. Mrs Tegg became worried when her daughter failed to arrive and, after hearing that a crash had closed the road, she went searching for her and came across the crash scene. She was later joined by Carol’s fiancé Dave Farrell.

Henley’s power supply is so old it could blow at any time and generators are on stand-by, the Mayor warned this week. The 70-year-old cables throughout the town will now be replaced with night-time work beginning on Henley Bridge taking noise levels to more than 100 decibels. The Mayor Barry Wood said: “The noise levels will be excessive while the work is taking place.”

A fresh appeal has been made for the town council and residents to support proposals for an arts centre in Henley. The plan by the Henley Partnership opts for Marsh Meadows as the favoured site for the centre. But councillors rejected the idea, claiming the site was unacceptable. However, there are many supporters for such a facility.
