It landed on their Renault Megane, causing extensive damage

Leanne said: ‘The tree has toppled over and the top part of the tree

has caved in the top of the car. There’s no way of us getting in the car because

the branches are all over it.’

The couple have contacted their insurance company as well as police and Gosport Borough Council to see if any of them can help.
