It comes after winds battered the county on Saturday afternoon amidst spectacular thunder and lightening, uprooting several trees, including in Ullenwood Manor Road, near to the entrance of the Star College and outside the Cotswold Hills Golf Club. At Cotswold Hills Golf Club, in Ullenwood, members were trapped inside the clubhouse after two trees fell on the access road outside, blocking their exit both ways.One member said: "The road was blocked both ways for a while - to the left totally impassable but to the right the tree's fall was broken by a smaller tree on the golf club side."Club officials donned high-vis jackets and cut branches away to enable people to make their escape.The member added: "Some members were disappointed that an escape route had been made as they had told their wives they were trapped up at the golf club."There were four trees down in the space of about 300 yards.Several trees are also thought to have been uprooted in the Painswick area.
