A driver had a lucky escape but faces a financial headache after a tree fell on her car parked outside her home in Kingsbury today.
Hanna Quinlan, 31, was inside her home in Queen’s Walk, when a neighbour alerted her to the fallen tree at 4pm.
The tree, which appears to have damaged roots, has been on the street for more than 30 years.
Ms Quinlan, a 31-year-old dental hygienist, said she was relieved that no one as hurt.
