The storms predicted by the Met Office hit Andover last night bringing down trees and causing power cuts and flooding in some areas.

In the High Street, the Christmas Tree in front of the Guildhall managed to stay just about upright, however one in the Old Winton Road area didn’t fare so well as it fell, thankfully missing people and property.

Southern Electric have been at full stretch as areas of Andover lost power last night and were only reconnected this morning. Trains were affected too with major disruption due to safety checks being made and services suspended.

  • I have just had confirmation from Simon Ellis, Head of Estates and Economic Development, that the Christmas Tree by the Guildhall is up again and secured with the lights reconnected. Town Council Chairman Geoff McBride has been with Test Valley staff this morning to ensure that all necessary safety action was taken and is delighted that the Tree is now OK. Geoff went on to say, “The alternative was to have the tree taken down and I’m very pleased that Test Valley have been able to make it secure again. A big thank you to the team”.
