 The flood water level in Witney dropped yesterday, according to residents.

West Oxfordshire District councillor Andrew Coles said: “The situation in Witney remains threatening, but thankfully the River Windrush dropped yesterday in Bridge Street.”

Riverside Gardens resident and grandfather-of-five Keith Webb, 70, said his home was threatened by the water but added: “It has changed for the better.

“The river has gone down, but it was very touch and go.

“Personally I feel we have got over the worst.”
