Oxfordshire nursing home evacuated amid flood

Residents at a nursing home in Oxfordshire have been forced to leave after concerns about rising water levels in a nearby river.

The 36 residents of The Old Prebendal Nursing Home in Shipton Under Wychwood have been moved as a precaution.

An additional 14 people in nearby sheltered accommodation have also been taken to alternative residences.

Oxfordshire County Council said it had received reports of more than 40 trees which had fallen in the high winds.
