There was also slow traffic due to flooding on the A4074 between Nuneham Courtenay and Oxford.

The AA said this was made worse by people avoiding the A34.

Emergency services had to be alert to other incidents.

This included firefighters from Bicester Fire Station, Buckingham Fire Station and Kidlington Fire Station responding to calls of a person trapped in a vehicle stranded in flood water in the Marsh Gibbon area just across the border at around 6.30am on Sunday.

"I've been to check on the containment ponds across on Tilsley Park and risk areas across Dunmore. I've already been on to councillor colleagues and to Thames Water."

Bus services across the county were diverted, while hundreds of homes across Oxford and Didcot were left without power.

It comes as large parts of Oxfordshire have already been submerged by flooding this year prompting Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to visit the Environment Agency and homes in Osney Island in Oxford on January 7. 

A group of homeowners subsequently penned a letter to Mr Sunak calling for better flood defences to be installed in the city following the devastation that followed Storm Henk.
