The emergency services were called to the incident in Catton Grove Road yesterday evening and the road was closed for some time with diversions puut in place.

EDP columnist Chris Goreham said: “Apparently there was a man in the car the branch fell on. Thankfully it hit the bonnet rather than roof. He was very shaken.”

Police confirmed on Twitter shortly before 10.30pm last night that the road had reopened.
