A family of five from Crawley in Sussex has been left homeless after a ten tonne tree toppled onto the roof destroying much of their house.
The mature oak, in full leaf, collapsed without warning despite regular inspections by the council. No-one was injured but as Andy Dickenson reports it could have been a very different story.
He speaks to the householder Imkiaz Najam and his neighbours Vera King and Mahomad Ibrahim.
A family of five have been left homeless after a tree fell on their house in Crawley - causing part of it to collapse.
Tree surgeons were called to remove the oak and as they did the side of the house caved in even more.
The recent windy weather caused by Storm Brian could have been a factor.
Two adjoining houses had to be evacuated.
Luckily no-one was injured.
Our first concern is for the welfare of the residents involved. The mature oak was on West Sussex Highway's land. An arboriculturist has been in attendance to see if there are any indications as to why the tree fell. Recent high winds, wet weather and a tree in full leaf could have been a factor but investigations are continuing."
