Three injured as 300-year-old oak falls in Trentham

A 300-year-old oak tree has fallen down, leaving three people with minor injuries.

The 25m-high (82ft) tree hit a car, house and streetlight as it fell just after 10:00 on Friday, blocking Whitmore Road in Trentham, Staffordshire.

Incredibly, no-one was seriously hurt.

Tree surgeons have spent the afternoon clearing the road and garden.
