A man who died in Wiltshire during yesterday's storm has been named as Roger Hayward.
The 71 year-old from Bremhill near Calne was electrocuted whilst trying to remove a fallen tree from power lines.
Our thoughts are with Roger’s family at this difficult time. We cannot imagine how they must be feeling having lost him so suddenly. 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. The public should be careful not to underestimate the threats to safety that this weather brings, whether this is moving a fallen tree or driving through a flood. It is imperative that the public take the right precautions and do not take any risks that might threaten their safety.
