A ROCKWELL Green woman has told how a huge tree came crashing down outside her house - but she didn't hear a thing.

Becky Caughey, from Hilly Head, said: "I live right next to it but didn’t hear it fall and then I could here lots of voices so went to investigate and couldn’t believe what had happened.

"It’s still there now.

"There’s usually cars parked there and children walk to school up this lane so lucky no one was hurt.

"It’s going to be a long time until the electric is back on."

Becky noticed the electricity supplied had gone down at 8am, but didn't realise it had been caused by the fallen tree until she went outside an hour later.

Western Power hopes to restore the power supply by 3pm.
