Emergency services had to be called out to a road in Northampton after three cars were crushed under a falling tree.

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to Kingsthorpe Grove at around noon yesterday after high winds brought the tree and a telegraph pole down onto a set of parked vehicles.

The road had to be closed off while crews from the Mounts and Moulton stations cleared the area alongside a tree surgeon.
