One homeowner in Chorleywood has had a lucky escape after a tree fell across their driveway - and into part of their house.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue say a tree fell onto the house in Chorleywood this morning - they were called at 2.36 am and when they arrived at the scene, they found the tree had also crushed two cars parked on the driveway.

Fire crews were called to an address in Parkfield in the town and made the scene safe.

After around an hour and a half crews left the scene and advised the home owner to consult a structural engineer.
