And, with more rain throughout the day, flooding of rivers and streams remains a possibility around the county.

It comes after the country was battered by heavy rain and high winds throughout Tuesday and Wednesday brought by Storm Brendan.

The weather front hit Oxford late on Tuesday and was so disruptive that Oxford United were forced to pause their home match at the Kassam Stadium for quarter of an hour.

Oxford Mail:

Overnight and on Wednesday, rivers and streams burst their banks across the county, flooding roads in Launton near Bicester, West Hanney near Wantage and elsewhere.

More rain yesterday means the flood risk will take longer to subside.
