(Updated 2:12pm 18th January 2018)

Trees have come down across our area causing major delays for drivers and cancellations to rail services.

It comes after a gusty night - with the Met Office issuing a yellow warning of wind from 3am until 9am today.

At the start of the morning rush hour, a car drove into a fallen tree on the A30 London Road in Bagshot between Bracknell Road and Westwood Road.

The tree had come down on the carriageway, blocking both sides of the road.

Earlier this morning there were reports of fallen trees across our area, including:

Ash: Foreman Road between Guildford Road and Foreman Park, near the train station.

Godalming: Green Lane in Farncombe near Loseley Fields Primary School.

Cranleigh: Smithwood Common Road near Amlets Lane,  Knowle Lane, and Horseshoe Lane.

Chilworth: A248 between Sampleoak Lane and Water Lane.

Byfleet: Seven Hills Road between Burwood Road and the A245 Byfleet Road. 

Pirbright: Gole Road

Cobham: Near the train station.

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service and the police are also warning drivers to take extra care because of debris and fallen trees on the roads.

South Western Railway also felt the force of the severe weather, with services cancelled, delayed by up to 45 minutes or revised.

A tree blocking the line has now been cleared, but the service between Guildford and Havant remains suspended with a replacement bus service running between Guildford and Haslemere.

Meanwhile the Guildford-Waterloo local stopping service, via Cobham, has been suspended, but trains from Waterloo to Guildford are now operating with some small delays.

The Met Office's yellow weather warning has now been cleared.

As well as the risk of travel delays and cancellations to road, rail and ferry services, we are also warned of the chance of power cuts and disruption to mobile phone coverage.

The Met Office says there is also the change of injuries and danger to life from flying debris, along with damage to buildings.
