Rebecca Broxton reports from Bradford-on-Avon

The west is being battered by high winds and heavy rain - again. A staggering 4 cms of rain fell this afternoon, as a cold front moved steadily eastwards across the region.

Wind speeds reached 70 mph. Around 10,000 homes are thought to be without power in Gloucestershire.

Driving conditions have been very hazardous, with trees brought down. It's been little better on the railways with flooding causing delays and cancellations.
