Thousands of homes are without power across the UK, after Storm Eleanor hit overnight.

Newbury, Thatchem, Arborfield, Wokingham, Crowthorne, Maidenhead and Alton were all affected by the cuts. 

At least two trees were brought down in the Thames Valley.

One blocked Bramshill Road in Bramshill near Hook. 

The one that ended up on the A327 in Miley Manor near Aldershot, blocking the road both ways, was cleared fairly early on in the morning rush hour. 

South Western Railway - which runs trains between London and Reading, Alton and Basingstoke - said they had to run at reduced speeds because of the wind, and were warning of disruption throughout the morning rush. 

A yellow weather warning for Hampshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire is in place until 6PM.
