Four cars were caught in the initial carnage although with a team brought in to cut away the fallen tree, two of the vehicles managed to depart the scene fairly quickly. A third, a taxi, was eventually cut away after half an hour while a Kia, which had been stationary when the tree fell and which took the brunt of the damaged, was removed later on.
Fortunately no-one was injured in the storm, although the Kia, which was parked on the side of the road at the time of the incident, was a write off.
