Driving instructor in near miss as tree crashes in road

A driving instructor has laughed off a lucky near-miss after a huge tree crashed down in front of his car in high Storm Doris winds.

The falling branches smashed down onto the road as Paul Smith drove through Spalding in Lincolnshire, a scene he captured on his dashboard camera.

He posted the video on the Facebook page of his Paul Smith LDC Driving School, writing: "All in the day of being a driving instructor!

"Feeling very lucky that I managed to stop before I became a pancake due to this tree falling in Spalding this morning - thanks Doris!

"Need a strong coffee or something a little stiffer!!!"
