Back to all reports

Overhanging trees need attention or inspecting at least. My wife ran over a huge branch in the dark that lodged under her car and stuck. We needed to call for breakdown help to lift the car and remove the huge log!

The branch came down in overnight winds I assume. My wife ran over it on 24/12/20. It has been removed from the road simply because it remained lodged under our car and was removed by the breakdown man with difficulty. It damaged the exhaust shielding on the car and could have damaged it more. This has not been the first time our car has been damaged on this stretch of road. A few years ago a small tree had come down in the road just round a bend. It took the wing mirror off our car!!!
