Council crews have worked tirelessly to keep the county moving after the severe weather over the Christmas period.

Bucks County Council dealt with more than 180 emergency call-outs in the two days before Christmas, mostly due to fallen trees and flooded roads.

Crews carried on the clear-up operation during Christmas Day and Boxing Day, removing around 100 fallen trees from roads and attending 45 surface water flood sites.

Eight council teams worked across the county, along with three teams of specialist contractors, to clear blocked roads of fallen trees, while four gulley emptying and ‘Super Sucker’ teams cleared the flooded roads.

Although the Met Office has forecast wind and rain for the next 24 hours, there are no flood warnings for the county from the Environment Agency.

However, emergency crews will remain on alert and be ready to help clear any fallen trees or surface water flooding on roads throughout Bucks.
