Fallen trees block roads throughout the area

Commuters face delays as emergency services work to clear trees which have fallen on roads throughout the area.

The Royal Borough has received reports of at least 30 fallen trees and firefighters answered 53 calls overnight, helping people when they became injured or trapped.

First Great Western in Berkshire announced that as of 6am this morning all services were operating but an obstruction on the line between Twyford and Henley-on-Thames has caused delays. 

Trains into London from parts of south Buckinghamshire face delays due a tree blocking the line into Marylebone.

The Highways Agency has advised for all commuters to take extra care and to only consider travelling when absolutely necessary.

Maidenhead firefighter Steve Hogg said: “It’s not too bad, it could have been a lot worse.

“We’ve had to go out to a lot of trees down but nothing too serious.”

Bin collections will run slightly late in the Royal Borough after a delayed start earlier this morning.
