Giant redwood blown down into home
7:31am Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
A 100 foot tree has crashed into a house in Southampton.
Homeowners heard a huge crash as the huge redwood was blown down.
The drama happened in Redwood Way, Southampton.
Experts say the road is likely to remain closed for at least two days while the clear-up operation continues.
An investigation has been launched into why the tree came down around 5pm yesterday.
Last night residents said it had been seriously affected by rot.
Fire crews worked into the night to clear debris from the scene and check that no major structural damage had been caused to the house.
