Tree falls on house in strong winds

Police in Northamptonshire had to cordon off a bungalow after strong winds blew part of a tree on to it.

A 50m cordon was put around the house in Vine Hill Close, Higham Ferrers and police evacuated houses within 50m of the bungalow, a force spokeswoman said.

She said: ``Nobody has been injured but the fire service has called a tree surgeon to assess the possibility of the remainder of the tree falling down.''
