A statement from Aylesbury Vale District Council said: “Unfortunately, Friday’s market in Aylesbury’s Market Square has had to be cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions.

“We’ll make an announcement tomorrow on whether the Saturday market will still be able to go ahead.”

The weather has been causing difficulty across Aylesbury Vale this morning, with an accident during rush hour on one of the main routes between Aylesbury and Buckingham and a handful of schools closed.

The collision between a lorry and a motorbike took place on the A413 between Whitchurch and Winslow at around 8.30am, leaving the road blocked and forcing some commuters to turn around and seek alternative routes into Aylesbury.

Firefighters used airbags and hydraulic rescue equipment to release an injured woman with fire crews from Buckingham and Aylesbury in attendance.
