UK storm: 'Miracle escape' for Woking imam's family
The head imam of one of the UK's oldest mosques has said it was "a miracle" his family escaped injury when a falling tree crashed into their flat.
Hafiz Hashmi was leading prayers at the Shah Jahan Mosque in Woking during the storm on Monday.
A tree hit his flat next door while his young son and wife were inside.
"I heard a big bang and I went outside to see what had happened. I saw the tree was on the roof where my kid was sleeping," he said.
"Luckily, or unluckily, it fell on my house and not on the mosque itself," he said.
"It's a miracle no-one was hurt, when you see the size of the tree and the damage it caused you will understand that it was a miracle.
"We are homeless in a way now."
