Great Storm aftermath captured in Wakehurst Place photo

Nearly 25 years ago the so-called Great Storm devastated the south-east of England.

Trees across the region were torn down and among the places hardest hit was Wakehurst Place in West Sussex.

David Marchant, who has lived and worked at the gardens all his life, helped with the clear-up and treasures a photo of that fateful day.
