A TREE has fallen on top of a car on Hyde Hill in Chalford.

The vehicle was hit by the falling tree at 7.30pm. The driver was not injured in the incident.

She said: "I was incredibly lucky.

"Two foot either way it could have been a completely different story, as there is half a tree on the bonnet and half a tree on the boot.

"The only warning was the person in front of me not moving and reversing and behaving weirdly so I stopped, and then bang, tree on the roof."

Police have temporarily closed the road.
