A MOTORCARAVAN has ended up in a tree as Storm Isha batters the county. 

West Mercia Police say they are aware of the incident that happened next to the A40 near Pencraig, and the driver is safely out of the vehicle. 

Motorists are advised to avoid the A40 this evening (January 21) as strong winds, plus heavy rain, has made driving conditions difficult. 


There have been several crashes on the dual carriageway, as well as a fallen tree, say police. There have been other reported incidents of fallen trees in the county, including in Walford; however, it is understood they have since been cleared.

Herefordshire is currently under an amber weather warning for wind, which is in place until 6am tomorrow (January 22). 

The treacherous weather has led to power outages in parts of the county, including in the Ross-on-Wye area. 

The Environment Agency has also issued a flood alert for the river Lugg south of Leominster.
