Fire crews in Greater Manchester say they got over 230 calls last night. They came between 5pm and 7pm as people battled against the stormy weather. Among reports of loose tiles and chimney stacks there have also been some lucky escapes.
A tree came down on a car in Broadoak Road, Ashton, where passers-by helped the driver out. In Woodhouse Lane, Wythenshawe, a tree came down in the garden of a house trapping the family inside.
I'd like to thank everyone for their help as we deal with these weather related incidents."Our fire crews, officers and control room staff - along with other emergency services and partner organisations - are doing everything they can to keep the community safe."
