AN ENORMOUS tree thought to be hundreds of years old has apparently been destroyed by Storm Dennis.

Huge branches of the old large tree have broken and fallen to the ground outside All Saints Church in the village of Lockinge near Wantage.

It is not known exactly how old the tree is or what species it is, but it previously towered above the others around it.

Over the weekend Storm Dennis caused flooding, high wind and heavy rain across the UK.

This afternoon two flood warnings have been issued for Oxfordshire meaning 'immediate action is required' to stay safe from imminent flooding.

It comes after some 40 less drastic but equally important flood alerts were issued this morning.
