Thousands of homes across Oxfordshire have been left without power this week as Storm Jocelyn caused mass outages in the county.

Due to Storm Jocelyn, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks moved to a weather warning status for central southern England.

This came ahead of a period of high winds forecasted for Tuesday (January 23) night, from 9pm, into the early hours of Wednesday (January 24) morning as a result of Storm Jocelyn.

The Met Office also issued a  'yellow' weather warning for strong winds affecting the county from midday on Tuesday, lasting until midday Wednesday.

More than 1,500 homes across 134 postcodes in Didcot were hit with a power cut on Tuesday evening while hundreds of homes in South Oxfordshire continued to be without on Wednesday.

Several postcodes in Bicester and Witney also suffered power outages on Tuesday evening.

The energy company said: "Following the restoration efforts from Storm Isha SSEN’s teams are remaining in place to deal with any damage to the network and subsequent faults, which may interrupt customers’ power supplies.

“We will continue to monitor Storm Jocelyn closely as it develops, and we will issue further updates as required.

“If you see any damage to our equipment, please stay back, don’t touch it and instead report it to us directly by calling 105, or via our power track website, and engineers will investigate as soon as possible.”
