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.
