MOTORISTS have been urged to drive with caution after Storm Isha caused many trees to fall onto busy roads in our area last night.

Cotswold Local Neighbourhood Policing Team, Gloucestershire Highways and BGG Garden and Tree Care have been working together to respond to several reports of fallen trees which were blocking roads around Fairford and Lechlade.

One of the fallen trees damaged a car on the A417 between Lechlade and Fairford near the Shell petrol station at around 6.50pm on Sunday, January 21.

The driver of the car did not sustain any serious injuries.

A spokesperson for Gloucestershire Police said: "A man in his 60s confirmed that his car had been damaged by the tree but he was unable to confirm whether the tree had fallen on his vehicle or if it was already in the road when he collided with it.

"The driver, who is not thought to have sustained any serious injuries, was able to move his car to the Shell petrol station.

"The tree was moved off the A417 by members of the public and the road remained open.

"We would like to remind anyone who is planning on using the road today to be careful and to drive with caution."

Other incidents of fallen trees were reported near Meysey Hampton, Down Ampney and Fairford.

GCC has confirmed that all the roads in this area are now clear.
