A man who died after trying to move a tree caught in power lines has been named.
Roger Winston Hayward, who was 71-years-old and from Wiltshire, is believed to have been electrocuted.
Mr Hayward is believed to have tried to move a fallen tree, brought down by the high winds yesterday afternoon, which had also brought down power cables.
Police and ambulance services attended the scene and sadly pronounced the man dead at the scene.
Local Inspector Nick Mawson said, "I would like to remind the public to be extremely careful with any fallen trees, particularly if power lines are involved.
"Please call 999 so that we can come and secure the area."
