Tree blown onto car in Wapping – squirrels surprised but unhurt

Today’s high winds proved the downfall of at least one tree in Wapping as it toppled over, demolishing a lamp post as it fell onto a car parked in Reardon Path.

No one was injured and our local Wapping police officers were quickly on the scene and taped off the area.

A tree surgeon was called to deal with the remains of the tree and allow access to the car which seemed to have suffered only minor damage.

Wapping local PCSO’s checking out the scene.

Close examination of the tree trunk showed that it was rotten.

Rolling updates as we get them throughout the afternoon.
