TRAVEL across Oxfordshire was still severely disrupted today following yesterday's torrential downpours.

RAF Brize Norton's weather station recorded 127.4mm (5in) of rain, the highest level in the South East of England.

Worst-hit today was the county's rail network. Flooding at Banbury means all Chiltern Railways, Virgin CrossCountry and First Great Western services through the town are suspended, cutting off the county's links with the West Midlands and North of England.

Chiltern is operating trains to an emergency timetable between Bicester North, Haddenham & Thame Parkway and London Marylebone only.

FGW services on the Cotswold Line between Oxford and Worcester are suspended due to flooding at Moreton-in-Marsh, in Gloucestershire. The route will remain closed on Sunday.

No replacement buses are being provided due to difficult driving conditions.

FGW's trains between Oxford, Reading and London and from Didcot Parkway to the West of England and South Wales are running to special timetables.

The A420 is barely passable at the B4508 junction at Shrivenham due to flood water on the road.

Oxfordshire County Council has advised motorists to drive cautiously due to the continuing wet weather and the amount of water on the roads.

Environment Agency flood warning alerts were in force this morning on parts of the rivers Cherwell, Evenlode, Ock, Ray, Thame, Thames and Windrush in the county, with lower-level flood watches in force elsewhere.
