HEAVY rain has left pools of standing water on some roads and triggered a series of flood alerts covering Oxfordshire.

Downpours hammered the county overnight and, although no further rain has been forecast yet today, four flood alerts remain active today.

They cover parts of Oxford, Bicester, Farmoor and West Oxfordshire - see map below.
