Tree crushes cars

Several cars were crushed when a tree came down in high winds in Southampton.

Eight vehicles were damaged when the large tree toppled over in a car park near The Cowherds pub at Southampton Common on Wednesday.

No-one was hurt and tree surgeons were called to help clear the scene.

Last year an 85-year-old man was killed by a falling tree while walking on the common.
