Eastgate Street, in Bury St Edmunds, reopened after fallen tree lands on car
A main town centre route has reopened after a fallen tree landed on a car, blocking the road, this morning.
Eastgate Street, in Bury St Edmunds, is open after two Suffolk Highways engineers cut up and removed the tree.
The car’s roof has been badly dented – resulting in problems opening and closing the passenger door.
Owner of the car Tam Amara, 46, was made aware the tree had fallen on to her car after police officers knocked on her door at 11pm yesterday.
She said: “It was a bit of surprise to check the Ring doorbell and see the police standing there.
“Luckily I work from home so it hasn’t affected me getting to work or anything.
“It’s just hassle now because it’s too much damage to leave but not enough damage to write the car off.”
Traffic in the town should improve now the road has reopened, however the A143 Compiegne Way is still closed.
