A fallen tree has blocked a busy road in Ascot, narrowly missing a white car. 

A giant branch from an old oak tree collapsed onto London Road, following periods of high winds during last night’s storms. 

The road has been blocked since around 09:30 this morning, a team later arrived at the scene to begin clearing the obstacle. 

Bracknell News:

Traffic is now being directed down one side of the road, which is located near the intersection between Queen’s Hill and Wellswood Road. 

A resident has said it looks like a “delayed reaction” to the strong winds and may take “quite a while” to clear.
