The scene in Wanstead on Monday as a poor unfortunate Mini Cooper was crushed by a falling tree. No one was hurt as the tree – for unknown reasons – fell outside the Goddard Veterinary hospital. Pictures courtesy of Wansteadium reader Ann Kaye.
UPDATE And here is video of the event, from the fledgling WansteadTV service.
UPDATE 2: The Wanstead Guardian reports that the tree was reported to the council two weeks before it fell. The council told the paper that it had told the landowner it was unsafe but that it fell before it was made safe.
