I'd like to be first to patronise the poor people working outside today, by labeling them 'brave'.

Worcester News photographer Jonathan Barry was in the area when the tree fell in Severn Terrace, Worcester, and said he heard an "almightly crack" as it fell.
Did he not think to take any photos then...............

He couldn't find anyone to stand by the tree and point at it, so didn't bother.

Looks like there's a large tree down on the corner of Croft Road and Castle Street now. Have the council closed off the entire area and erected any ludicrous temporary lights yet?

No. The temporary lights come when they have cleared it all away!
