POLICE and council workers were kept busy during the night as storm Aileen hit North Wiltshire.

The B4696 at Minety, between B4040 Malmesbury Road and Cox's Hill, is blocked in both directions because of fallen power cables.

Royal Wootton Bassett police said they were called out to a number of trees that had fallen across roads including a large one that blocked the B4042 between Brinkworth and Little Somerford.

The route was later cleared.

The B4041 at Broad Hinton was reported to be partially blocked due to fallen tree, and fallen branches had to be cleared from in Burbage.
